wow those are old!! nice topic though. a more modern legend to me would be Charlie Mayle. he lived in stonewood till a couple years ago. he was a marine back in his day but his later years were spent in Norwood park or Ina shed in stonewood. Charlie was a hell of a runner in his day and jut a few years ago ran the blackberry marathon in nutter fort. if I remember correctly he was drunk but the former Nffd chief offered to buy him new shoes if he agreed to do it. Charlie placed pretty high that day considering. ultimately Charlie's running got him killed. he had shoplifted from rt 19 foodlion and was running from store employees and ran out in front of a car on 19.

Charlie mayle did in fact shoplift and was given a citation for such, he was moderatley sober even for Charlie at the time the citation was given and then left the store by himself, he was struck by the car a few hours later and was very intoxicated at that time, he did not run from anyone and was very cooperative, this is exactly how rumors start

How about a little old laddy called Mildew. she ran around downtown C Burg in the 60-70s. She was found dead, totaly decomposed in the building located at 4th and Clark Streets on the 5th floor. She would run after people with an umbrella downtown if they joked with her.She also pushed around a Krogers shopping bugy.

Charlie Feoppel and truck full of pork barrels, which you could smell coming from miles away. The smell was similar to the odor that wafted off his pig farm (located on a now famous five acres of land on old Bridgeport Hill) on particularly windy days during the 1960's-1970's.

What about the Radio Man? I think his first name was Sylvester, he used to live under the McCoy house (building between Dr. Fungs and the college on Main Street) and act like he was talking on a CB Radio.

Wasn't Pop Bottle Pete's real name Bennie and was he the one that had a wheelbarrow and a small child (I think it was his son) he pushed everwhere?

awwww, now Henry had two quarters and constantly worked them in his hand. You could always find him at all the high school basketball games.

Who was Robert Boley?
