The University of Miami has sold a section of endangered forest in Florida to a Palm Beach County developer that will bring a Wal-Mart store, restaurants and apartments to the land. Last month the university sold 88 acres of rockland, which is habitat to plants animals and insects found nowhere else. The developer agreed to set aside a 40-acre preserve.

If it's under 100 acres it's not much of a preserve.

What's sad is there is a WalMart supercenter only about 10-12 minutes away.

God knows the one thing we need more of is WalMart.

The Walton family are exterminating rare and endangered ecosystems to import cheap junk food and electronics - it's a lose/lose/lose situation. I wish the Walton family gave any consideration for anything other than profiteering. They are bloodless economic vampires deserving of Wall Street statuary.

One could only hope a hurricane would take out wally world. But then again, they would find a way for tax payers to pay for it.

Let's all weep for the insects found nowhere else.

Or, maybe they'll fly or crawl away, to somewhere else.

If the land is so important, then why is it in the public domain? There are many different ways the land, and the endangered species could be preserved.

Priorities....

Maybe all the tree hugging anti Wal-Mart people out there can pony up and buy the property themselves and make it a park. Put your money where your mouth is. I'm sure if it was a Whole Foods or a Trader Joes there would not be so many rare and endangered animals out there.

Trader Joe's is now owned by Germans, so you'd probably like them.

The WalMart Haters will still also vote for Hillary even though she sat on the board of Directors and her Husband set them up with Chinese manufacturing.

Too small to fit a 2nd Walmart in?

Ever notiec that where ever a wallmart goes, incomes go down, costs for services go up.

Overall quality of life goes down.
