Briefs: Barber shop misses football helmet

The Simpsons Family Barber Shop in Menlo Park has lost a beloved tchotchke. A Stanford football helmet, a gift from a customer, vanished a couple weeks ago.

"I don't know when or what happened, but it suddenly disappeared," said shop owner Laura Haphung. She said the helmet is worth about $250, but this isn't about money. "The helmet belongs to the shop. Customers, football players come in and look at it. Hopefully somebody returns it."

Contact the shop at 853-9913 or drop by 1181 El Camino Real to shed light on the helmet's whereabouts.
