Cecil Observer: Elkton Homeless Not What You Might Expect

From the Cecil Observer —-

Most people go to Elkton’s “Music On Main” on Thursday evenings to listen to live music, see the car show and maybe have some ice cream from Squire’s Pantry’s ice cream wagon. But when you dig a little deeper, you might find that some people have a story to tell. Walking up the steps onto Main Street last Thursday, I met a man with a firm handshake and a pleasant smile.  Meet James Walker of Elkton. James was relaxing on a park bench while the Pure Pleasure Band played in front of town hall, and North and Main streets were lined with classic cars and hot rods.

James seemed like a guy out for the evening before heading home to get a good night’s sleep. But appearances can be deceiving. James said he is “always around” because he has no home to go to and has had no job for some time.
