CHURCH HILL -- There's just one traffic signal here, a yellow blinker out by the elementary school. Main Street has a lumberyard, a bank and a sandwich shop. The town hall is a clapboard house. Tiny Church Hill, population 530, is usually described as halfway to somewhere else - Chestertown, for instance, or Dover, Del. So the notion that Wal-Mart might bring a 180,000- square-foot store to this Eastern Shore crossroads has people talking of little else. "In my mind, it would be the absolute worst-case scenario," says Sandi Sheahen, 51, whose parents ran the lumberyard for many years.
