Longtime barber Neil Lawler stands at his station, at MW Hair Studio in Paducah, on Thursday. Lawler, who has been cutting hair in Paducah for more than 62 years, retired Friday.


The year Neil Lawler got his first job as a barber, the United States joined the Vietnam War, John F. Kennedy was elected president, a new dance craze called The Twist would sweep the nation, and a little known British band changed their name to The Beatles.
