It was six years ago Douglas Wayne “Doug” Livelsberger closed his iconic shoe repair shops in Gettysburg and Hanover and moved to the tiny town of Gouldsboro, Maine.

He kept his “Beanie’s Shoe Repair” business going in Gouldsboro and continued to fix customers’ footwear in these parts as well; people shipped him their shoes for repair, and Doug would ship them back.

T.W. Burger began is journalism career at the Gettysburg Times in 1985. He worked for several other newspapers in the area during the 1990s and 2000s before returning to the Times as a correspondent in 2013.
