Dash Between: Clarence Talcott, barber, bowler, baseball fan

Clarence A. Talcott once owned a barbershop called Clip 'n Snip in Sheffield, Ohio, across from St. Teresa Catholic Church at Colorado Ave. and Abbe Rd.

He plied his trade at several haircutting venues in Lorain, Cuyahoga and Erie counties.

In his spare time, he bowled at numerous lanes in the same areas, as well as at tournaments in and outside Ohio.

When his eyesight failed, he could no longer cut hair, but he continue making strikes with a blind bowling league.
