They must not have been money makers. Maybe the shoppers in E.V. are tired of cheap, toxic products from China. Maybe the rest of us should demand American-made, or boycott WalMart altogether.Oct 19, 2011
The new trees will eventually cover signs on buildings, and than it will take several years before the trees are tall enough to reveal the signs by pruning lower limbs. That’s why merchants want the fastest-growing tree, she said.
Hard to believe that store owners are so self-centered, they're actually concerned about trees and their eventual growth covering their precious "signs". What they should be concerned about is the loss of life-giving oxygen created naturally by trees, the air-purification they provide, and the shaded respite from the harsh sun. Pasadena got rid of their trees for the same reasons, and turned out to be one stupid option that turned shoppers away from the once cooler shaded streets. Okay, so I'm a tree-hugger, get over it.Oct 19, 2011
Mr. McCain is belaboring this touchy subject that nobody has a clue how to resolve. Maybe Sheriff Joe can collaborate and elaborate along with AZ's gov and bring their ideas to those on The Hill on how it should be done. At least he's pro-active on a subject that our officials remain inactive and clueless. It's long past due to tell Mexico to keep their citizens under control...otherwise, the answer is to boycott on their fancy, expensive tourist attractions and resorts. Let's spend the money in our own country, at least until Mexico's thugs and drug lords kill each other off.Sep 27, 2010
Hate to think it, but it seems somebody has it out for the widow. Under the circumstances, I'd suggest a thorough investigation. Funny how the article mentions the individual involved with a Mexican-sounding name is a U.S. Citizen. Wonder why they thought that was necessary? Oh, right...the illegal immigration problem.Sep 27, 2010
