As a resident concerned about a potential Walmart in Burbank, I would like to say that everyone wants to pay less for things. Everyone. And as a teacher who can't get more hours, I can especially appreciate that. But if there is one thing that I could try and get across to people, it would be these “low prices” that Walmart advertises aren't as low if you look at the larger picture (“Walmart is far from a cure-all,” Aug. 30). A lot of people who want Walmart think that its coming to town would be good because of the state corporate income taxes they will pay. But what a lot of people don't realize is that Walmart avoids paying millions in dollars in taxes a year because of the way their real estate trust is set up. They put their stores under the ownership of a real estate investment trust.

Gregor Tevan was sentenced on Aug. 9 to two years in prison for doing just that to his brother, according to police.
