I take none of you aside from the first poster and the last poster (the Alan Alda guy who posted previous to this post) read any of the article(s). Wal-Mart stated it still wants to open a store on Rt 3 in Orange County. Several large landowners are falling over themselves to land the deal, who can blame them? I didn't really care one way or the other if Wal Mart was going to be built on the orignial site but I was disgusted that the people against Wal Mart would infringe on a person's right to sell/develop his/her property that he/she has been taxed on for 20-30 years at a commerical tax rate. Let's keep it real here for a second, Lake of the Woods was built on part of the battlefield and areas that may or may not have had direct fighting but sure as hell had someone sleeping/pissing on before/during/after the battle. For that matter so was Lake Wilderness and Fawn Lake. I am happy to see that Wal Mart has/will bought/buy the orignial property.
