See You In September

Just got an e-mail from Wal-Mart:
Dear Valued Customer,

You’ve probably seen or heard about the support for the proposed Pullman Supercenter, and the letters to the editor and news stories reflecting the sentiments of thousands of Pullman residents.

We wanted to recognize the support we have seen in Pullman for the Supercenter, and thank you for your effort to let your friends and neighbors know that you are a part of a large group of residents in Pullman.

We also wanted you to know that the process for beginning construction of the Supercenter is on track, and just this week the City of Pullman issued a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) which indicates that all requirements and mitigations have been satisfied. The issuance of the DNS begins a 14 day public comment period during which written comments in support or opposed to the finding will be accepted.

Please consider forwarding your supportive comments, focused on your agreement with the findings of the DNS, and that you agree with the city that all necessary requirements and mitigations have been satisfied. Comments should be sent to:

Mark Workman, Public Works Director
City of Pullman
325 SE Paradise Street
Pullman, WA 99163-2631
We’ll keep you updated on our progress, and expect that we will be able to break ground soon on the new Supercenter. And we look forward to inviting you to our Grand Opening!

Again, thanks for your support, and the letters and comments that have provided overwhelming evidence of the large number of supporters in Pullman.
I'll be there. Look for the guy with the tape on his mouth. Not protesting. Just to keep from laughing.

The letters to the editor in support of Wal-Mart have been appearing in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News. Running about 50-50 by my informal count. Of course, the Daily News has already come out against Wal-Mart, so who knows what the real number may be. Plus, a small group of fanatical opponents tend to write a lot of letters to the editor.
