Pagosa Springs residents Lucille Stretton, center, and Barr Bentley jockey for space outside the town’s fairgrounds where they were letting people know how they feel about Wal-Mart’s plans to build a supercenter there. “It’ll save us some gas from having to go to Durango,” Stretton said. Shelley Roman, left, favors it, too. Bentley objects to the retail giant’s business practices.
