A bipartisan group of U.S. representatives wants the Treasury Department to return about $30,000 that the IRS seized from a western Maryland dairy farm under a law aimed at curtailing money laundering.
Randy Sowers always expected the government to show up one day and ask where all the cash he was depositing at his bank came from. He thought he had the right answer: from his business selling eggs and milk at farmers markets.
Anne Arundel County officials say the current tenants of the former Naval Academy dairy farm will resume organic operation of the property.
To modern ears, it sounds like a fairy tale: Once upon a time, a uniformed man drove a truck and delivered glass bottles of cold milk to the front door. But the tale of the milkman seemed to be a story without a happy ending.
