Cindy Morris: TMH was nice, helpful
To the editor:
I recently had a carpal tunnel operation at The Memorial Hospital in Craig. Prior to the operation I was feeling nervous; I hadn’t been operated on since I had appendicitis at age 13. From the moment I entered the hospital, I was treated with professionalism and kindness. Everyone from the admission personnel to the doctors and nurses put me at ease and offered me every professional courtesy. It is a great comfort to know that excellent health care is available right here in Craig, Colorado!
Colorado treats marijuana taxes like ‘a piggy bank,’ but top lawmakers want to limit spending to two areas
The complaints from constituents and policy advocates are aimed at the Marijuana Tax Cash Fund, a depository for about half of the $272 million the state is expected to generate this fiscal year from marijuana-related taxes. The legislature has guidelines for how the money should be spent, but lawmakers can use it for just about anything they want. And in practice, they do, splitting the money among dozens of different programs, across more than a dozen state agencies.
