    A BBC crew was at the lake Jan. 21 to shoot interviews and other footage for an episode tentatively called “Cosmic Pinball.”BBC researcher Jenna Lane said the “Horizons”episode will air on BBC Two in the United Kingdom later this year, then on the Science Channel in the U.S. on a future date.

  • When it comes to legalized marijuana in Colorado, one area lodging establishment considers it a blessing, while another considers it a curse. For several others, it’s not an issue at all.

    The Cliff House Lodge in Morrison still bans tobacco smoking in its cottages, but there’s no problem for marijuana smokers. In contrast, the Comfort Suites at El Rancho doesn’t allow smoking of any kind in its rooms, and it’s fining a fair number of violators since smoking recreational marijuana became legal in Colorado on Jan. 1.
