The Village Clocksmith
Tick tock, tick tock.
John Newman spends much of his time keeping time.
The Village Clocksmith brought several clocks and his expertise from Prattville to Selma last week and shared insights with the Historic Preservation Society on how to keep clocks in good repair.
Retired from IBM where he worked at the Kennedy Space Center, Newman has worked on clocks for more than three decades and been a consultant at Emperor Clock Company in Fairhope. Now that he runs his own clock shop, he restores timepieces whether they sit on mantels or high in a tower.
Newman can help many clock owners with minor clock repair via the Internet. He's also a clock expert at www.allexperts.com.
