SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) — Springfield businessman Jack Koehler says it's time for the city to embrace its most famous fictional residents and create a shopping district with The Simpsons theme.
He's the owner of Sweety's Frozen Yogurt and has a set of Simpson statues in front of his store.
Koehler wants the city to get involved, but the community relations manager, Niel Laudati, told KVAL (http://is.gd/ugj5dc ) there's no demand from the public. He doubts anyone wants to spend tax dollars to license cartoon characters.
