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?�
