CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Colorado theater shooter James Holmes' IQ score dropped dramatically over two years he was in jail, possibly because of mental illness.

But that number fell to 116 by the time Hanlon examined Holmes again in January 2015.

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) — A planned pot-friendly ranch resort in southwest Colorado has been snuffed before it opened. The 170-acre CannaCamp resort touted weed-friendly activities such as hiking and fishing. But a deal with the landowner fell through, and the marijuana-tourism company promoting CannaCamp has announced that the resort won't open, after all. The MaryJane Group announced that it hopes to find a new home for CannaCamp by 2016.

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Three Colorado veterans who were captured by the German military in World War II have finally received their medals more than 70 years after they were liberated.

PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — Work is under way this week to give one of Colorado's oldest freeways an overhaul. The Pueblo Chieftain reports Colorado Department of Transportation officials say the Pueblo section of Interstate 25 hasn't had a single upgrade since it was built in the 1950s. Pueblo County Commissioner Liane McFadyen estimated it would cost about $88 million to widen the road, fix bridges and make a series of other changes.
