Redmond Sports Clips: ‘Barber shop of the new millennium’

Haircuts are no longer a chore for men and boys at Sports Clips Haircuts, Redmond’s newest barber shop. “We’re becoming the barber shop of the new millennium,” according to Phil Brown, who is Northwest Area Developer for Sports Clip, along with his wife, Laurie. At Sports Clips, a haircut is just the beginning of the made-for-men experience. “After the haircut, you get a shampoo, scalp massage and a hot-towel treatment,” Phil said. “It’s just a very relaxing experience.” And its a quick experience — “you are in and out in 20 minutes,” Phil said. The new store, which is located in the Bear Creek Village at 17158 Redmond Way, features sports memorabilia on the walls, along with flat-screen televisions, heated shampoo bowls, vibrating massage chairs during the shampoo treatment — and of course quality haircuts.

Redmond Sports Clips store manager Erika Denman and owner Rob Crandall, who said business has been good since the sportsthemed, made-for-men and boys barber shop opened last month. The store, in partnership with Sammamish Baseball Academy, will hold a free baseball clinic on Saturday at Marymoor Park’s field No. 5. BILL CHRISTIANSON, Redmond Reporter

“Most men don’t look forward to getting haircuts,” said Sport Clips CEO and founder Gordon Logan. “We make the experience as painless as possible. ... We have a lot of really nice touches that you don’t get in a lot of other chains and franchises. It’s a real nice comfortable experience.” The Redmond store opened last month and is the 800th Sports Clips nationwide. To celebrate

the milestone opening, Sports Clip, in partnership with Sammamish Baseball Academy, will hold a free baseball skills/drills camp Saturday from 9-11 a.m. at Marymoor Park’s field No. 5. The first 200 participants will receive four tickets to next Tuesday’s Seattle Mariners-Oakland Athletics game, the second-to-last contest of the season. During the camp, Sammamish Baseball Academy

PET of the MONTH Lavendar

When Lavender first arrived at Homeward Pet she was a very frightened kitty, but who can blame her? Coming to a shelter from the confines of a comfy home is never easy. Her owners were moving and unable to take this attractive tabby along. At first Lavender pretty much kept to herself. However, lately she has gotten in touch with her ‘inner kitten’ thanks to the coaching and confidence-building of one of our volunteers!

...obituaries Carolyn Catherine Yerden

December 10, 1923 – September 9, 2011 Carolyn Catherine Yerden passed peacefully at her home in Woodinville Washington on September 9, 2011. She was born in New York City to George and Hazel Mullaly. As a young working girl at Bell Telephone Laboratories in New York, she met the love of her life, Raymond S. Yerden with whom she would share a full life for 65 years. “Ray and Carol” began their married life, and Carol’s life work, on Long Island, first in Levitown, then Farmingdale, where soon their family grew to five children: Linda, Madelyn, Trisha, Tom and Jane. In 1964, Carol packed up the household to begin one of the first family adventures. The family moved to New Mexico where Ray worked on the Apollo project and helped put the first man on the moon. Ray’s work for Grumman Aerospace would eventually take the family from New Mexico, to Whidbey Island, Washington, and Camarillo, California. In 1974, Ray and Carol set off with the two youngest children on a new chapter of adventures to work in Tehran, Iran; Misawa, Japan; Cairo, Egypt; and New York. Across the globe, family remained at the center for Carol. Her life’s work was her family; trusted advisor, companion and wife to her husband, center of the universe for her children and grandchildren. She was the glue for an entire family, orbiting around her. In 1990, Ray and Carol eased their globetrotting and retired to Woodinville,Washington, where Carol continued to track children, grandchildren and her next best love…sports. The Seahawks and Mariners were added to her family. She is survived by her loving husband, Ray Yerden of Woodinville, WA; sister Jane Nicolini of Cutchogue, New York; brother-in-law, Gil Yerden of Remsenburg, New York.; her children, Linda (Jim) Saunders of Colorado Springs, Colorado; Madelyn (Dan) Walker of Seward, Alaska; Trisha Ball (Tom) of Danville, California; Tom (Carol) Yerden of Salmon, Idaho; Jane (Tom) Hawkinson of Sammamish, Washington; 13 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Carol was the guiding light and inspiration to her children for family devotion and lifelong companionship. Her sign off was always, “Love you Big as the Sky”. Go Seahawks!

When Lavender gets the opportunity to stretch her legs and let loose in the communal playroom, she has shown us how she can be the life of the party! This 2 year-old is looking for a quieter home with an owner who will enjoy her playfulness. Lavender is often affectionate and other times she just likes to do her own thing. She would be an easy cat to care for and may be a good companion for another cat-friendly cat.

In addition, Sports Clips will hold a “towel cutting” ceremony next Tuesday at noon at the new store location. Logan, along with officials from the Greater Redmond Chamber of Commerce and the Mariners, will be on hand. That evening, Sports Clips will present an $8,000 check to the Mariners Care, the team’s nonprofit organization, to recognize the 800th store opening. “This business model has been really taking off,” Phil said. Rob Crandall, the owner of the Redmond and Woodinville stores, said the Redmond location is “fabulous” as many new popular businesses are opening in Bear Creek Village, like the clothing store Ross Dress for Less and Agave Cocina & Cantina, a family Mexican restaurant and tequila bar. “It’s an exciting time to go in there,” Crandall said. “They have made some great improvements at the center.” And now with Sports
