I would like to respond to Joy H. von Buschow and her letter entitled "Big Enough" (Dec. 19). She made the following statement: "I also want to remind everyone, Wal-Mart will not be buying and selling produce and fruit from our local farmers and orchardists." I wonder where she got this information because it is absolutely incorrect. Point of fact: we are currently packing local orchardists' fruit for Wal-Mart.
Also, in regards to Gary Fields' comment that Duckwall's largest building is 30,000 feet, point of fact is that our main plant under one contiguous roof is nearly as large as the proposed Wal-Mart and six times as large as Gary Fields alleges.
I am not taking a side in regards to this Wal-mart issue but I am upset that people are making statements that are unfounded and untrue. If you're going public with an allegation at least make it accurate.
