THE ANSWER TO THE "SHOE MAN"
I've been getting a lot of emails about the "Shoe Man" of Columbus Park. I had blogged earlier how the man who has been repairing shoes for 26 years has moved. I was wondering why and now there is an answer....
The Police have been chasing him away because he doesn't have a license. Although the license only costs $100, the number of them is capped per year.
Like a fugitive, our Shoe Man has to be on the run from the Police. I think it's ridiculous.
The Shoe Man doesn't hurt anyone and he hardly makes anything. He is a staple in our community. I want to ask if there are more important things to take care of in our community than chasing away an old man?
