I'm an old "fart", lived in East Whg in the late 30's and early 40's before moving to Elm Grove. I have lived in Alabama, Alaska, Michigan, Ohio, NY, Florida and visited most of the states and outside the country. I have seen many changes in our economy, ups and downs. Our country has undergone race and ethnic prejudice since it's beginning. We annihilated the "native" population, and persecuted the Italians, Asians, Irish etc when they came over in boat loads. Having lived in Florida for over 20 years I witnessed the influx of different cultures, some good, some bad but "Mostly Good"! I have been treated by Serb, Indian, Asian, black, white, German and a whole host of others in the medical profession. I'm living today because of their expertise and their caring. So open your minds to our changing world, there is more outside the Ohio Valley. I visit often and It's still beautiful.

Here is the FUTURE of the USA in CA NOW

(Reuters) - California's Hispanic population will equal that of whites this year before becoming the state's largest demographic group in 2014 for the first time since statehood in 1850, a government report showed on Thursday.

That change in the most populous U.S. state will make it the third where whites do not comprise a plurality of the population, after New Mexico and Hawaii.

Whites are already a MINORITY in CA at 40%, there IS no majority race in CA."

There IS no majority race in CA, whites are only 40% today.

Grammy, It's not about intelligence. Sometimes when you read an article and you feel good about it because someone is being treated right you get upset when Ohio Valley Racist punks start spewing their drivel. I do that's for sure. You gotta take the time to put them punks in their place. The Ragdude knows nothing about how to treat his fellow human being, I'll pray for you buddy!

Raggy, There are probably more Italian or German speaking people in this area than they are LEGAL hispanic speakers. Show me some verifiable numbers. If what you say is true, I will write to Lowes and ask them to print 25ftx25ft signs in all the languages of the world.

The answer is that Lowe's watches their customers. They see that many of those who come in to buy materials for contracting jobs are illegal immigrant, lawbreaking, criminal Spanish speakers. Lowe's does not care, so long as the workers are not trying to spend pesos. They most like do watch their customers. Anybody in retail knows that you have to know who your customers are, and cater to them. If Lowes gets sued because a hispanic customer slips and falls on a wet floor then you will be paying a lot more for your duct tape. That is why business have signs that read "Wet Floor/Piso Mojado". If there is a large illegal population here (doubtful) then blame your friends and neighbours who sold their souls to t

Why not print signs in Italian, German, Russian or Chinese?

The answer is that Lowe's watches their customers. They see that many of those who come in to buy materials for contracting jobs are illegal immigrant, lawbreaking, criminal Spanish speakers. Lowe's does not care, so long as the workers are not trying to spend pesos.

It is about making a convenient shopping experience for the criminal scum, lowlife illegals among us.

Those of you who employ illegals, either in contracting or as household staff, or who purchase goods or services from companies that employ such scum are scum yourselves.

This nice gesture of the food wont last long once CERTAIN INDIA people find out. I was told by a worker at Lowes in ST.C.about a yr. ago, that the reason that they stopped putting out samples of apples, oranges, strawberries etc, was because certain people that were of the INDIA decendent [spelling?]you know the ones with scarves over their heads and dressed in just some kind of a sheet, would come in, usually on Sundays and just stand there by the samples and eat all the samples.Actually this i think may be true because i was behind a woman[India} and her 3 kids and thats exactly what they were doing.After a few minutes i said nice and LOUD,, HEY !!Did you ever think that OTHER people might want to sample the food??That food is SAMPLES and not to make a MEAL out of it,save some for others to try..She gave me the death stare but moved on with her herd of kids.I was later told that her husband was a DOCTOR. Honest.so they werent hurting for food. true story.

Aahhh, the racist attitudes in the Ohio Valley never cease to amaze me. I'm sure Lowes doesn't have signs printed with English and Spanish just to irritate the ******* population. THey print tensof thousands of signs at a time and they are distributed to Lowe's stores all over the country, including those with large Hispanic populations as well as those like the Ohio Valley with small Hispanic populations. Its a matter of economics. Have any of the Valley ******** ever travelled outside of the Valley? In places Italy, there are road signs printed in Italian and English! There are even some places in the US where signs are printed in English and French! And in almost any Chinatown, well, you can almost forget seeing any English in those places.

If Lowe's wants to be a part of the community then they should remember that they are in Wheeling, West Virginia and not Nogales or El Paso.

All of the signs in English and Spanish. Why?

Is it because of all of the illegal immigrant construction and drilling workers who come in?

The hispanic population is so miniscule that it makes no sense to have dual language signs.

Lowes obviously caters to illegal immigrants.
