November 29, 2012 I The Lovell Chronicle I 13 BY DAVID PECK Kurt Wheeler was looking for a business op- portunity close to fam- ily in Lovell. The son of Lovell native Tamara Sav- age Wheeler of Laurel, Mont., and the grandson of Doug and Eva Savage, he has a number of rela- tives in the area and had recently completed barber school in Billings. Wheeler and wife Tammy, who hails from Belgrade, Mont., start- ed looking around and contacted Sue Taylor at Lovell Inc., who put them in touch with Bob Jensen, who owns the barbershop building. It turned out that longtime Clyde Drain of Clipper Clyde fame was ready to retire. Kurt's Cuts was born, opening Thursday, Nov. 15. After graduating from high school in 2005, Wheeler served a mis- sion for the LDS Church /'! DAVID PECK Kurt's Cuts owners Tammy and Kurt Wlieeler greet Linda Martin and Karen Spragg during the Holiday Mingle in downtown Lovell on Saturday, Nov. 17. in Connecticut and Rhode and groundskeeper for Island, then worked Billings Facilities Man- as a maintenance man agement, which takes care of LDS buildings in southern Montana. Tammy Wheeler grad- uated from high school in Belgrade in 2007, then earned a degree from BYU in 2011 in mathematics education. Kurt, mean- while, took a one-year bar- ber course at the Academy of Nail, Skin and Hair in Billings. Newlyweds Kurt and Tammy moved to Gardin- er, Mont., in 2011, where Tammy taught high school and middle school math for a year, but then the couple started to pursue business opportunities. "We have a lot of fam- ily in Lovell, and we want- ed to be close to family and see if I could get a job as a barber," Kurt said. "I went to Lovell Inc. to see if Lovell needed a barber, and Sue said Clyde might be ready to retire and to talk to Bob (Jensen). The timing was just right. We got really lucky." The couple is run- ning the new business, and Tammy will soon be- gin substitute teaching, hoping to land a full-time teaching job in the future. THE BUSINESS Kurt's Cuts is open Monday through Friday at 8 a.m., keeping doors open until 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and until 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. He takes walk-in customers, and appointments can also be made - even after hours if the need is there. Wheeler also offers hot towel shaves, scalp treatments and grey hair coverage, which he said was "pretty popular" in Billings. Kurt's hobbies include rock climbing and rappel- ling, and both Kurt and Tammy like to read and write. Kurt hopes to write a series of science fiction novels. "We plan to be here as long as the business works out," Kurt said.
