I'm very much in favor of the expansion of WalMart. There are many seniors here in Hood River who no longer are able to drive to The Dalles, Portland, or Gresham to go where the larger stores are located, I'm one of them. I am dependent on others to take me as many stores here in Hood River are more for tourists and the prices are too high for us on fixed incomes. WalMart folks are good folks, they take care of each other as well as contributing to many worth while needs in the community. I hope they get to expand their store in the near future. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment. Sincerely, Ilene Brandenburg

I read the article. Sounds like the expansion was written in from the beginning of Walmart's construction at the current location in Hood River. I would try to get something written into an agreement to go ahead with the 30,000 foot expansion that says Walmart will give back certain proceeds into the Hood River School District.
