I'm aware of it probably due to my proximity to Arkansas, where, I believe, they still fly the state flag at half mast to mark his passing 13 years ago.
Or maybe they just forgot to raise them back up.
Does Wal-Mart sell these? Would that be Sporting Goods or Hardware?Originally posted by FlyingSorcery:

Most town protest when they want to build so they end up in the poorer towns and usually dont develop into the big super marts they are in some areas. Hartford let one in but it came with rules - they had to hire Hartford residence only, let them be union, proper health care etc. So when they do come into CT the towns and state nail rules onto them since they are knows for giving below average wadges and little to no health care.

It inched its' way towards the Insterstate Highway, and now sits at the main interchange to the city. There was hotel and a restaurant at the time. Now there is a Sam's Club, a Lowes, three strip malls, a multi-plex movie theatre, Target, Sears, Kohl's, and a multitude of car dealers.
