Killeen salon up for sale after 55 years of business | Business

After 55 years in business, Elena’s and Goldfinger’s, a hair salon in Killeen, will sell its building and then cease operations.

Owner Gus Garcia, 75, said he has three buyers that are trying to buy the building, 2206 Florence Road.

“We have had others that were curious,” he said. “I am letting my son take care of selling it because he is in the real estate business.”

Garcia said the reason for closing is that he is planning to retire.

“The next phase in life is retirement. And the people that have been working with me for all of these years, we all agreed and saw signs that it was time to close,” Garcia said, adding he doesn’t work as many hours as he used to.

Garcia said his mother was the reason he got into cosmetology.

“She got her license in Hawaii where we lived at the time, and

U.S. equity markets rallied sharply Tuesday, catapulting the Dow Jones Industrial Average to above the 30,000 level for the first time as the S&P 500 also booked a fresh record.

Hopkins Latest to Buy Multi-Million Dollar Paradise Valley Mansion

Apparently, Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury started a trend that has spilled over into his team. At least, for those that can afford to live in Arizona’s Paradise Valley.

In April, during the virtual NFL Draft, Kingsbury’s $4.45 million, 7,022-square-foot house with four bedrooms was featured in the telecast and went viral on social media. Cameras showed Kingsbury sitting in the living room of the home with a spectacular view of the “back yard” and mountain in the distance.

Then, last month it was learned that after signing a new contract that made him the highest-paid player in the NFL at his position, safety Budda Baker purchased a 7,492 square-foot home in Paradise Valley for $4.725 million that features a six-car garage.

Now, comes wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to one-up them all.

Also fresh off a new contract, which he negotiated largely himself, Hopkins recently plunked down $5.1 million

Columbia County Courthouse wide shot stock

The Columbia County Courthouse is seen in downtown Portage.

A former contractor from Doylestown faces a state charge of theft by withholding taxes.

Norman Vick, 59, was charged Nov. 17 with one felony count of theft in a business setting. He is accused of withholding more than $103,000 in taxes from employee paychecks and then not depositing the money with the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. He faces up to seven-and-a-half years in prison, five years of extended supervision and $25,000 in fines if convicted of the charges.

109-year-old Phippsburg inn for sale

The Rock Gardens Inn, built in 1911, is for sale for only the fourth time in the inn’s history. The 4.6-acre property is listed for $4.25 million.

WISCASSET — The 109-year-old Rock Gardens Inn in Phippsburg, which has served as a safe haven for visitors and an oasis for artists for decades, is for sale.

The inn, built in 1911, consists of a cluster of nine cottages over 4.6 acres that can house up to 55 people. The property is listed for $4.25 million.

Ona Barnet, who bought the property in 1984, said she’s selling the inn to retire and hopes to keep a cottage for herself so she can continue living there, but that request has deterred prospective buyers.

“Most buyers are interested in buying the inn as a whole,” said Barnet. “We had one serious buyer around this time last year but then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and
