If they were planning to build ON the battle field, I might agree.

But whereas it is 1/2 mile away, I fail to see the problem.

Don't like it? Don't shop there.

Problem solved.

I am amazed that no Hollywood stars or preservationists have any problem with a big red roof, yellow arches, and all the surrounding shops and stores at the corner of 3 & 20. They bruise your eyes as you start down the hill on rt 3 from the east. Yet they are up in arms about the Walmart that will be on the opposite side of the highway from the "sacred" battlefields, and will have a tree lined buffer which their aforementioned neighbors were never asked to provide. I will be sadly disappointed if the ruling favors all these folk who do not even live in this county, and ignore the desires of it's residents. If this occurs, I will know that paying taxes, and voting for your county representatives means nothingl

To hell with Sedwicks and the hardware store too...build a Home Depot next to Walmart and put the whole town out of business. Oh yeah, I forgot that the big boxes will provide many zombie jobs....and apartment buildings.....and residual chain restaurants. It's a shame...I love Orange the way it is......

They can even take and own your SOUL!!!. One day I was in there using their pay phone. I then noticed this little piece of paper folded up. I got it, unfolded it. Guess what it said, "Da** the Holy Spirit God". You fill in the ** with mn!. That's bad ain't it?.
