City Boots Hot Dog Seller

Item: Ironman didn't relish hot dog seller/Tom Hasslinger, CDA Press

More Info: Ford Ironman Coeur d'Alene, the annual triathlon which brings thousands of people into Lake City every summer, was one of the complainers against the hot dog stand owner whose contract was terminated by the city this year, the Coeur d'Alene Parks Department said. Gordon Andrea operated his concession stand at Independence Point for more than 20 years, but a number of complaints from members of the community -- and Ironman -- were instrumental in the termination of his contract with the city, the department said.

Question: Do you miss the vendors that used to sell hot dogs, candy corn, snow cones and a number of other treats in City Park during the summers years ago?
