June 14, 2007
To the editor: In contemplating whether a new Wal-Mart is a good idea, here are some things to consider:
Added costs
June 13, 2007
To the editor: We should use the funds the city used to fund the million-dollar entrance for developments like at Sixth Street and Congressional (signals and interchange modifications) for basic city services.
Taxes were lost
June 11, 2007
To the editor: I recently read Doug Brown’s column and just now Gwen Klingenberg’s response regarding the proposed Wal-Mart at Sixth and Wakarusa. Feelings continue to run strong on both sides of this issue.
Legends leakage
June 10, 2007
To the editor: Much has been written lately about our drop in sales tax and about the Wal-Mart that is going to be shoved down our throats.

June 9, 2007
To the editor: Well, I like Wal-Mart. And, judging by the number of cars in the parking lot of that great store, I’m not the only one. Enough said.

Wal-Mart benefit
June 6, 2007
To the editor: The city is always talking about being broke, and yet they spend thousands of dollars fighting Wal-Mart on the new store they want to build. This store would put a lot of people to work (maybe not at a great salary, but at least they would have a job).
Wal-Mart to submit new plans for store
June 2, 2007
Wal-Mart will try again. A developer that’s working to bring a Wal-Mart to the northwest corner of Sixth Street and Wakarusa Drive confirmed Friday that the retailer will submit new plans for the city to consider, rather than immediately putting the project back in the hands of a judge.

Wal-Mart win-win
May 31, 2007
To the editor: Apparently, people like Doug Brown (Take A Stand, May 26) just don’t get it. This is not about Wal-Mart. But, yes, it is about stigma.
