To the editor:
Are there any plans to build a Super Wal-Mart or put a grocery store in northeast Lawrence? There is absolutely nothing here north of the bridge.
I live in Jefferson County and don't like the drive south or west of Lawrence. There's so much traffic coming and going through northeast Lawrence that it would only make sense to have a business that would actually benefit the public. It is too bad with all the empty buildings that are run down, and sitting idle. What's up with them? They sure aren't doing the community any service.
Then you have the price of gas. Who wants to drive any farther than they have to. Come on, people, wake up and fight for some local stores that would serve us all. A Wal-Mart in northeast Lawrence, would mean one stop on the way home from Lawrence. The community should work harder and make their wants known.
