After 40 years of beautifying generations of Kincardine residents, Clan Hairstyling is closing its doors.
After 24 years with the business and a decade as owner, Angela Page said its time to get back to the basics of what she loves.
“I want to get rid of the business side and enjoy what I do again,” she said. “I’m leaving with a heavy heart. It’s going to be a big change for me, but it’s the right move.”

You don’t have to be an oldtimer, or a hockey player, to enjoy the OldStars hockey weekend.
The Kincardine Erie Belle OldStars hockey team has been operating this weekend party for 37 years now, and they have learned a few things over the years.
“Well, we kick the whole weekend off with the tykes on Friday night,” said OldStars defenceman Dan McFadden. “(The OldStars) always sponsor a game for the tykes – they play a real game, then get a hotdog and drink and goodies.”
Two Kincardine midget hockey teams will play for All-Ontario titles. Two teams will begin OMHA championship series this weekend - one on the road and one at home.
The Miller Insurance midget Kinucks will travel to Penetang for Game 1 of the OMHA midget B finals on Sunday afternoon. The puck drops on that series at 3:25 p.m. Game 2 of this series won't be played until six days later, when Penetang visits the Davidson Centre for a Saturday night contest. Kincardine is the defending OMHA champs.
The Beisel Contracting AE Kinucks, meanwhile, will start the OMHA migdet AE GR3 finals Sunday in Kincardine. Mooretown will be in town for a 3:30 p.m. start. Kincardine will then travel to Mooretown for Game 2 of that series Thursday at 7:30 p.m. The midget additional entry team is coming off a five-game series win over Collingwood.
The final schedules for both series are as follows:
