The wall in front of Shepherd University's McMurran Hall Sunday was again graced with the unwanted flotsam of daily living in open defiance of an edict earlier this month by the McMurran Hall Board of Trustees and university officials that evicted the community Really Really Free Market. Two maverick downtown businesswomen, Lillian Potter-Saum, owner of The Local Source at 133 1/2 W. German St., and Maria Allen, owner of Maria's Taqueria at 111 W. German St., said they reopened the market on their own to protest the closing and to show support for the volunteers who established it five years ago. Robbie Glenn, a 24-year-old Shepherd student, organized the market with three friends as a community service and greeting place where residents could drop off or pick up unwanted household and other goods.
