Hugo CO: Water System Tests Positive To Pot


It has been three years since the Centennial State legalized marijuana. Along with younger advocates, ex-hippies now in their sunset years are flocking to Colorado. They want to enjoy the smoking and aromas of the formerly forbidden evil weed.

Miss Liberty's Crown to Welcome Visitors Again PDF Print E-mail

The area has room for just 30 people at a time, and when the crowds are large, guards move everyone along so that each gets only a few moments in the crown. There they can stare 15 miles out of the 25 windows at the harbor, Ellis Island and a calmer New York City.

And keeping them in sight at least 24 hours a day while there requires eternal vigilance. Although WDW is squeaky clean and one of the safest vacation places on earth, you still need to be a super monitor.

One of our family trips to WDW many years ago, we had the horror of losing our three-year-old daughter. She was only gone for five minutes, but they were the scariest moments of our lives. We made the mistake of taking our eyes off of her for a moment after joining the wall-to-wall crowd on the sidelines watching the daily parade.
