On Oct. 3, 2007, David McCarty made local, state and national news for his stand against Wal-Mart.
Prior to that day, McCarty and his wife, Penny, lived on what seemed like a secluded island on Campbellsville Highway. Mounds of dirt sat alongside their neatly manicured yard while the constant sounds of bulldozers filled their once peaceful home. Their home of 10 years was completely surrounded by what is now a Wal-Mart Supercenter.
After months of living amongst the construction, dust and debris, McCarty stood his ground by… well… sitting.
