Wal-Mart Update From the Road

As we cross the seemingly endless plains of South Dakota, I have some good news and bad news about Wal-Mart in Pullman.

First, the good news: Local contractors are reporting that Wal-Mart has put out bid requests for work at the Bishop Blvd. site. The bid replies had a May 15th deadline.

Now the bad news: The District III Court of Appeals has six months in which to file their first draft of the opinion and an unlimited time to file their final draft. Thus far, nothing has been filed. June 19 will be six months. The court's pace makes the glaciation which laid down all this rich Dakota farmland look positively speedy. We are being very poorly served by these public officials in positions of high responsibility.
