Letter: MCHS track coaches thank Michelle Chalmers
To the editor:
The Moffat County High School track and field team would like to thank Michelle Chalmers for hosting an exceptional track and field experience for our local youth during April and May.
Michelle approached the track coaches about putting together a series of practices to introduce kids to track and field, culminating with an organized meet with events and ribbons.
Michelle selflessly wanted to organize the practices and meet and wanted all money to go toward supporting our high school track program.
Thank you, Michelle, so very much for taking on such a huge task (we had more than 140 registered participants) and allowing us to help out as you tirelessly worked to make sure this was a quality experience for children in our community.
The Monday Meet was a crazy mix of running, jumping and throwing and many kids left with a great memory of what track and field is all about.
We’re looking forward to next year.
Lance Scranton, Todd Trapp, David Pressgrove and Pat Moore

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.
