I appreciate Naseem Rakha taking the time to write her perspective on the Oregon kicker ("Kicker offers chance to address pressing problems," Wednesday, March 15). I have a few thoughts of my own on this subject.

Several times in her column, Naseem refers to the return of incorrectly forecasted revenue as a "giveaway." While it is a giveback, I would have preferred not to have paid it in the first place. It is first and foremost my money and not the state’s money, whether the state has it or not.
