Where in the heck are you talking about?? Definitely not Clearlake unless you are on a 1960's Acid trip..... The "CITY" is a DUMP!!!!!! BOpen your eyes!!!
No acid that Pepcid Complete couldn't resolve, not a drug user here unless you count vitamins, I swallow them and not smoking anything.

I have lived in worce places Compton, North Richmond.....too much gun fire there had to relocate, people don't discuss they shot you if they are having a bad day.

Clearlake is a work in progress and people expect too much with the little funds the city gets to keep from property tazes.

WEe have a good City Council (- 2 who like to be different) But alas all in due time they will spring board out of there one who has sights on a supervisor position (God Help Us) and the other just won't get re elected.

I chose to retire here because I saw this city as I said A work in progress, it is far better than I saw what was going on back 20 years ago even 10 years ago.

have a nice day IF YOU MUST....if you do not find anything good about Clearlake consider leaving.

Sorry. I support local businesses and never shop at Wal-mart. Its icky.
FYI
are you aware most all the goods at any of the stores either at Wal*Mart or the ones over the hill in Santa Rosa are from China, check it out the next time you pick up an item...MADE IN CHINA hard to escape mo matter if anyone likes it or not.
With many companies moving out of the USA very few items say made in U.S.A.

Yeppers even Kmart major input from foreign countries it is a fact.

Wow, in reading these comments we go from the expansion of Walmart to Indian Artifacts to Made in China. Can anyone read between the lines? What is wrong with this picture? Corporation take over - to who really owns the land to who has business savy.
Personally, I am for a expansion! Lake County has not much to offer in the way of shopping, and I am sick of driving to Ukiah- Santa Rosa and even Sacramento to shop for the bargains one can find in doing so in order to stretch the dollar. Two, Walmart employs so many people from students to seniors to the underpriveldged and I would rather see this than them all living off of the system because lake county has little or no jobs to offer. And Three, if we in the USA with all of our highly educated, overpaid not to mention Greedy soles would have enough business savy to create such businesses then we would support our local businesses and buy products made by and in the USA.
With our local businesses now, most not all are Greedy, Rude and have no sense of Quality Customer Service. They are in it for the buck and the buck only. Who cares if you buy a hundred dollar item and it breaks within a month, oh so sorry your lose!
Get real people, things wont change until we the people start take the bull by the horns and see to it. Bring it on Walmart, maybe with your expansion, I wont have to drive to Santa Rosa for Holiday cookie cutters!

Wally World is much more than cheap things made in China. I can't find an oil change any cheaper, or lower priced food in the "super sized" Wally World. They take care of their own employees. If local businesses would stop charging twice what the items are worth, maybe then it would pay to keep the money local.

Yep, we have our problems here in Clearlake, but if you haven't noticed, the unemployment rate in the County is a stated 16%, personally, I think that it is much higher. Recently, there have been headlines of murders, rapes, and more in the County. And guess what? They were not in Clearlake. This entire County is in deep trouble. High unemployment and an inability for folks to provide their most basic needs are the driving force behind many of the problems that the ENTIRE County is facing. So go ahead and throw stones if you like, but you my friend should realize that you live in a glass house. We need a dramatic change that will enable folks to be able to obtain ANY work. Wal-mart is just one such small opportunity, but better than nothing.

You have reiterated the very same points I have been trying to stress. I agree with you 100 percent.

Remember when Wal-Mart first came to Clearlake? I seem to remember the plastic bags sporting a "Made in America" logo. What happened? I also remember Beno's and Stephenson's as decent places to shop for clothing......before Wal-Mart!

Beno's and others have come and gone for the same reason that no decent shoe store has been able to survive in Clearlake. The median income of Clearlake is in the low 20K range. Folks do not have any disposable income to spend on things. Walmart stuff is not high quality, but they do sell things that people need, and they sell it in such mass quantities that they can survive here in Clearlake. Unless and until our City and County leaders become aggressive in the pursuit of attracting businesses that will provide decent jobs, that will sustain families, we will have the terrible business environment that we have.
We need to grow and develope jobs as fast as we can. Walmart is one small answer, but it is not the problem.

This area is on life support and it needs ANY help it can get. If that help starts with Walmart, great. Hopefully it expands all the way over to the airport property that showed promise before the "do-gooders" killed it. We need businesses to come here that offer jobs, not people who peddle utopias.
