Sarah Remington drops off her son Jacob, 2, at Wendy’s Teddy Bear Day Care in Vancouver in a Columbian file photo from October. Remington, a single mom, received a $3,000 bill in the mail from the state saying it paid her for child care subsidies for which she was ineligible. The state approved Remington in error, and now, she’s responsible for the bill, which she can’t afford. Remington has appealed and is waiting for an administrative judge’s decision on her case.
