Dont let this happen. We have lost so many businesses already and the big WALMART doesnt care who it hurts. We need to shop local, support local and let our county grow. This will be yet another overtaking of WALMART that continues to provide most of their items from CHINA with little regard for the consumer.

I have no great love for Chinese products or supporting China, but with todays economy we are forced to look for cheap products and we sure do not get any breaks price wise from our local markets. There fore I would love to see a "Supper Wal Mart" come in.

They way Wal Mart has squeezed the isles in to accomadate more display area, makes for crowded isles. If you stop to look at something, you have someone banging into you.

So I say BRING IT ON.....ONE STOP SHOPPING!!!

long ago before anything but the mason lodge occupied that area or approximate area it was told of it being a place where food stores and people camped, those called the Koi. In the early 1970's as the south shore center of the county government was built, the clearing of land for an extension of a college and the leveling of ground for a public school which is going to be closed there were those people, those Koi.
Being one of those in the program through the lake county office of education, one of those who through the North Coast Opportunities in a regional occupation program under the auspices of the Konocti School District i particpated in a heavy equipment course whioch leveled the ground of the site where Oak Hill is. The artifacts we uncovered and never told a soul, now possesing a BA in anthropology and hoping to submit an application to Sonoma States CRM masters program, will the report take in the lose of native artifacts and ecofacts.
When later i worked for Edward Pestana Inc on the Clealake Sewer project of the mid 1980's we found many artifacts in that area while blasting, trenching, and laying pipe with all the appliances which goes into moving the crap people create.
And like Clearlake needs an expansion of the cheapest box store entity there is in the world, statitstically they Wal Mart(corporate) define capitalism to its core, in an ecopnomic crisis should a community embrace that which is the decline of the middle class.
It was good to be union once, a union of peoples working toward a common goal, today it is a union of corporations with little or no regard to the people who work. Sad it is the state of a nation as ours these days. And change is not seeing things in black after centuries of seeing white when both wear the same cloth.

Not to mention taking out the only Tire & Lube shop I trust (when it comes to Walmart's that is).

I say restore and expand the Water Park. The only clean, safe fun people can have that's legal. Shoppin' and droppin' vs. slippin' and slidin'.

The expansion will most likely create more jobs which would be a good thing for the community. I'm not a Walmart fan BUT their prices are very hard to beat and we are all trying to get the biggest bang for our buck; therefore, I say bring it!

Yes we need more merchants like sears in lakeport, who care less about customer service, or even the minimal manners God gave chimpanzees. GOOD CALL!

Clearlake's slow-motion suicide continues at full-steam, with it's favorite accomplice, corporate America! hooray for sprawl, mindless consumerism and complete abandonment of any sort of local-based economy!

But think of all the negative nutritional value "food" bargins and disposable shiny bits of trash to catch the eye of the trailer park class, we'll have it all, bad economic policy, crumby jobs, a quicker death for downtown, and more money for the richest family on the entire planet!

The reason Clearlake has lost so many businesses has nothing to do with Walmart. They were never of value to begin with!! All that Walmart did was Weeded out the bad ones and the strong, with value still exist. Walmart is not hurting anyone, just providing the people with the services not provided by others. Bring it on!!!!!!!!!!
