`Ridiculous' petition

The other day my husband and I made yet another frequent trip to Wal-Mart, however, as we entered the store, we were asked to sign a petition by a Wal-Mart employee indicating that I would like to have "super" store replace the old store. I indicated I had not made a decision as to whether I would like a new store. This employee went on to say if I did not sign the petition, then Hood River would lose Wal-Mart in Hood River for good. Who told you this ridiculous fact? I really do not believe if I and other Hood River residents do not sign their petition that Wal-Mart would disappear from Hood River. By the way, my husband did sign the petition and after her remark to me, he regreted signing this petition and wished to take his signature back. Wal-Mart, please do not try to bully residents into making a decision while shopping. I would rather drive to another store than put up with this ridiculous act.

The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
