Nothing complements our historic downtown better than Longmont's oldest business," said Kimberlee McKee of the Longmont Downtown Development Authority. "The prominent barber pole is a showpiece of Main Street, a reminder of our past but also a sign that business is still alive and well today."
It's a business that Christianson said has changed little since 1972.
"I think barbering is the profession that's changed the least over the years. The technology really hasn't changed that much," he said. "The scissors are the same, and the comb is the same."
Boston University researchers said Wednesday.
Stabler, who died of colon cancer at 69 in July, had Stage 3 chronic traumatic encephalopathy, Dr. Ann McKee told The Associated Press. McKee said the disease was widespread throughout his brain, with “severe” damage to the regions involving learning, memory and regulation of emotion.
The diagnosis was first reported by The New York Times.
The disease, which can only be diagnosed after death, is linked to repeated brain trauma and associated with symptoms such as memory loss, depression and progressive dementia. CTE has been found in the brains of dozens of former football players.
