As has been discussed here earlier, Wal-mart is trying to put a store on the west side and the south side of the city. Residents, aldermen and religious leaders are divided in their opinions of the store. Wal-mart's representatives still refuse to put verbal promises, like hiring parolees from the neighborhood to fill jobs, in writing. The City Council is scheduled to vote tomorrow afternoon on zoning changes which, if passed, would permit the stores to open.
