We’ve heard a lot about the sex trade industry in Oregon, but a Redmond man is going to Nicaragua to help teach young girls another profession beside prostitution.  Hairdresser Tim Westcott learned of the need a couple months ago. “I was just cutting client's hair and she did missionary work there and she was telling me of the horrible epidemic of child prostitution and mothers selling their other daughters off the street and she asked me would I like to come and teach them to cut hair.” Westcott and four others will be traveling to Nicaragua on February 1st. They'll be there for two weeks, teaching about 50 girls the basics of how to cut hair, hopefully giving them a new way to earn a living.
