I’ve just heard the news that Walmart has asked Butch aka “Scuba Steve” to stop singing his songs in the Walmart parking lots.
For several years this precious man has hauled all of his gear behind his bicycle, rain or shine, to entertain the community. Christmas, Veterans Day, or whatever holiday comes on the calendar, ‘Scuba Steve’ is dressed for the occasion and bringing a smile to everyone’s face and a lightness to our hearts.
Granted, I am not familiar with the details of his removal but I have to ask you: What is the harm in allowing this beautiful spirited man to continue his dream of entertaining our community and tourists?
I ask Walmart to reconsider their ban on Butch. I ask our community to stand behind our beloved local personality.
