Joe's Barber Shop - Cutting Hair for 70 Years!

Joe's Barber Shop = A Little Bit of Mesa History

Joe graduated from Mesa High School in 1940.  That's when he started cutting hair.  He and his shop are part of Mesa's history.

For many many years my dad and brothers got their hair cut at Joe's Barber Shop.  The boys would come home with their hair slicked back and a treat in hand.  I have never been inside of Joe's, but I do love the outside of the shop.  It's a little pink building with beautiful pink flowers surrounding it.

Mesa Falls from 38th Largest City to 39th Largest City

Mesa use to be one of the fastest-growing cities in the country.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates Mesa to be the 38th largest city in the nation - down from the 39th.

The census shows that Mesa is still growing in numbers (maybe babies being born?), but figures from the city utilities show a 12 percent drop in trash collections between July 2007 and July 2010.  Apartment rentals have declined, and students in Mesa Public Schools have declined (maybe from Mexican families leaving due to SB 1070?).

Population is important for federal and state funding from roads to schools.
