"Our state is killing small businesses in our small towns right here in Fillmore County." That's a pretty harsh statement Jason considering you provide no facts or details to back it up. You could, you know. It's your publication.

Frank Wright,

I think one business that was killed because of State regulations was the closing of Willie's Grocery in Fountain, several months after Wille died. As the various licenses to operate the store was in Willie's name only, upon his death, the licenses weren't transferrable to his son unless his son spent thousands and thousands of dollars to bring the store up to today's current regulations, as Willie's licenses had been "grandfathered in" as he had been in business a long time before the current regulations were adopted.
