Public Service Private Benefit Medical
In this March 22, 2013 photo, a run-down playground next to an old fire station in Hoquiam, Wash., is shown. The city plans to replace both the playground and the station soon, and if it wasn’t for the medical expenses of a small group of retired firefighters and police officers, the city could have had the money on hand for such improvements, but instead had to seek the approval of voters to fund the projects.
