Healthy Eating: High Altitude Hard-Boiled Eggs
Use this method for preparing hard-boiled eggs when you live above 5,000 feet.
Place eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Add cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. Cover pan and heat on high just to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove pan from burner. Let eggs stand, covered, 15 minutes for large eggs/20 minutes for extra-large eggs.
Drain immediately and serve warm, or cool completely under cold running water or in a bowl of ice water, then refrigerate.

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.
