CLOSE SHAVE - Chris Couch, education director at the Western Sussex Boys & Girls Club, gets a buzz haircut Tuesday by Mike Shinners, the program director. Couch challenged members of the club's Brain Game team if they won the state championship, he would shave his head. They won the state title on Saturday and he owned up to his promise.
