Wal-Mart still in the wilderness

I thought the Wal-Mart near the Wilderness Battlefield problem would be settled Monday night. But nooooo. Nobody reads the paper in Orange County, apparently.
Sure, you can blame the weekly paper for missing the second of two required legal notices. But isn't someone in the county government reading the paper? The ad was missed in May, and it's two months later. They need to check that they are getting their money's worth.
Income from legal notices may be all that's keeping some newspapers afloat right now. I remember our reporters in South Carolina checked the legal notices each edition, in case something we hadn't heard about was being proposed. You know they weren't slipping in Wal-Mart.
Oh well. A couple more months of blog posts and opinions before final approval.
