    Chretien, who runs Roger's Barber Shop on Main Street, works on Cline's hair. He is now Wiscasset's police chief, but Cline has been going to Chretien for haircuts since 1986 when he use to live in York County. He stops in for a haircut when he is in town to visit family and friends. "I'm a people person, that's what I enjoy,'Chretien said. "I enjoy being around people."
