How the Board of Supervisors is spending your money

Merced County Supervisor Kathleen Crookham gave up her bid this week to hand a big chunk of county money to the Merced Theatre Foundation. We ran a story about it Wednesday. Since then, I've gotten several calls and e-mails suggesting the Sun-Star take a closer look at the policy that gives each supervisor $100,000 a year in "special district funds" to dole out as they see fit.
