    I find it interesting that a study commissioned by Wal-Mart and paid for by them finds that they help the community economically. Who would have guessed that would be the case? More interesting is that independent studies have shown just the opposite effect of those stores moving into a town. But the big question comes with an new tax money....at what cost to that community? Does the City Manager think this will not hurt businesses located in other parts of the city? If I want to buy dog food now where will I go....Wal-Mart or Tractor Supply? I think h answer is self evident. And I will be interested to see the real amount of NEW ales taxes after the first full year of operation.....I really doubt it will be all that much....more a shift of taxes from existing businesses!
