Oregon Marijuana US Attorney
FILE - In this Sept. 30, 2016 file photo, a marijuana harvester examines a bud that is going through a trimming machine in a rural area near Corvallis, Ore. The U.S. Attorney for Oregon says in a memo that he will prioritize enforcement of marijuana overproduction and interstate trafficking in the state. Billy Williams is the first U.S. attorney to detail his strategy for enforcing federal drug laws in a state where marijuana is legal. The memo released Friday, May 18, 2018, comes three months after Williams convened a summit in Portland to discuss what he calls a "significant overproduction" of marijuana in the state that's driving a black market and illegal trafficking to other states that have not legalized pot.

People in Colorado Springs looking for a soak in the state's famous geothermal waters look to Mount Princeton Hot Springs or other big-name spots. Dakota Hot Springs is one of the closer hot springs to Colorado Springs. The water temperature is about 108 degrees at the wellhead in the middle of the free form pool where it flows into a 6 foot diameter circular tub. The rest of the pool averages 95 to 98 degrees. The facility is clothing optional, except on Tuesdays when bathing suits are required. Lydia Ramirez wades through the shallow part of the pool on a nice Spring day on Thursday, January 19, 2018.
