Thank you for the article by Adam Madison about some of our community's long-time barbers. (andquot;Barbershops,andquot; July 7) Another fine example is Lloyd Haynes. His shop is near the Library in Price Mall. A photo of Lloyd at work is included on page 82 of the 1989 book andquot;Picture Del Norte County.andquot; There are reference copies at the (Del Norte County) Library and (Del Norte County Historical) Museum.

In a way, Lloyd went from cutting timber to cutting hair. He used to walk on logs in the water. Lloyd is a andquot;gentleman of the old school,andquot; whose loves include his wife, golf and old cars, not necessarily in that order.
