The Boy With the Boot has been a part of the Sandusky community since July 1895. He's been through a lot – everything from the infamous 1924 tornado that leveled Downtown Lorain to various attacks, including a shocking 1991 beheading. But he's endured to become the very symbol of Sandusky.
You locals can pick up your copy of The Black Swamp Trader & Firelands Gazette at the Vermilion Farm Market, the Oberlin Public Library and the Sandusky Library.
If you can't get to any of those places and would really like a copy of the article now, let me know. I have some extra copies of the newspaper and would be happy to send you one. But more than likely I'll do a future post with much of the same content as my article.
