Velican’s Ponderosa has been in business for 50 years; it will cease operation on June 30. The actions and attitudes of an unfriendly government at all levels (federal, state and county) due to the plethora of laws, rules, regulations, permits, codes, red tape and ordinances, coupled with excessive and ever-increasing assessments, fees and taxes make it impossible to make a profit. In addition, the constant threat of fines, penalties and even closure due to non-compliance takes the fun out of being in business. Love my country. Fear my government. W.P. (Bill) Velican, Weimar
