(AP) — The western Colorado town of Parachute is getting a drive-through marijuana shop, believed to be the first in the state.

The Parachute Board of Trustees approved a business license for Tumbleweed Express last week, the Glenwood Springs Post Independent reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/2m1PZCA).

"As far as I can tell, we are not aware of this business model ever coming up before," said Robert Goulding, spokesman for the state Marijuana Enforcement Division.

The business is expected to open in March in a former car wash.

Tumbleweed Express also had to get approval from the Marijuana Enforcement Division, which said the store cannot allow anyone younger than 21 on the premises, even in the b

Northern Colorado (9-17, 5-10 Big Sky) jumped on the Bengals early, taking a 10-2 lead on Radebaugh's 3-pointer barely three minutes into the game. By halftime the Bears held a 12-point advantage. A Radebaugh trey with 15 minutes left made a 16-point lead, 55-39, and the Bears were still up by that margin with under nine minutes to play.

Roughly 120,000 Japanese immigrants and Japanese-Americans were sent to desolate camps that dotted the West because the government claimed they might plot against the U.S. Thousands were elderly, disabled, children or infants too young to know the meaning of treason. Two-thirds were citizens.

And now, as survivors commemorate the 75th anniversary of the executive order that authorized their incarceration, they're also speaking out to make sure that what happened to them doesn't happen to Mu

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — While the Oregon Ducks figure they will find a way to score, defense will be what boosts the team the rest of the season.

The defense was certainly working against Colorado on Saturday.

Dillon Brooks scored 23 points and No. 7 Oregon extracted some revenge for the Buffaloes' upset earlier this season with a 101-73 victory.

Dylan Ennis added 20 points for the Ducks (24-4, 13-2 Pac-12), who won their 42nd straight home game. It is the longest active home winning streak in the nation.

The Ducks rode a 29-2 run that started late in the first half and continued into the second, stymieing Colorado's offense.

"We're going to find a way to score," Ennis said.

The 35-year-old Raburn has played for the Tigers, Indians and Rockies. Last season with Colorado, he batted .220 with nine homers and 30 RBIs in 113 games. He started 44 games in left field, one in right, one at first base and six as the designated hitter.

Improving the bench has been one of Cincinnati's offseason priorities. Manager Bryan Price likes the flexibility that Raburn could provide as a right-handed batter.

"Ryan is a guy who has been successful against left-handed pitching," Price said.
