Steve Andrew: Thanks for the cards
To the editor:
Early this summer my daughter sent the paper a letter announcing my 75th birthday and requesting cards be sent from my friends and acquaintances. Man, did I hit the jackpot. I heard from long-ago friends in Florida, Arizona and points in between, especially in Craig and Moffat County. I even got a card from one family with 24 names on it. To all of you, thanks so much. Your thoughts meant the world to me and made me realize there’s no place like home.

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.
