marijuana tax money lets manitou springs fix potholes, bankroll bigger improveme

in advocating “pot for potholes,” recreational marijuana proponents promised a potent new revenue source for tackling a familiar urban headache.but in manitou springs, the only pikes peak region community so far to permit recreational pot shops, the cash infusion has meant more than road repairs.just more than two years after manitou opened the first of its two retail pot stores, community leaders credit a booming pot trade for driving a resurgence in the city’s finances. the tax money has helped double manitou’s general fund after back-to-back natural disasters, bankrolled long-hoped-for improvements in its gritty eastern corridor and eased the financial path toward preparing for future disasters.“that all came about because of marijuana,” said marcy morrison, a longtime manitou resident

brutal conditions challenge workers on manitou incline

colorado springs, colo. (ap) — with both feet planted firmly so as not to slip and tumble down into the clouds, hugo benitez glanced over his shoulder, down to the shrouded ties and water-diverting structures that he and his team installed during two previous jobs on the manitou incline.“we never thought we would be here,” he said atop the region’s most popular trail. “we never thought down there that we’d be up here.”the task loomed above the false summit they saw from their lower stations in 2014 and 2016. now they’re above that hump, here at the highest reaches of the famous stair-stepper where hikers have always navigated loose soil on eroded slopes and broken ties around cracked culverts.the smell of mixed dirt hung thick on the thin air as eight men in hard hats worked through anothe

manitou springs – doughnuts and i enjoy a special relationship. as a kid, wednesday’s lunch was always a dozen doughnuts. at the office, i loved staff meetings because the boss brought doughnuts, and i still drive from aurora to thornton for haircuts because there’s a krispy kreme nearby.but don’t tell my wife, the nurse. she hates doughnuts.more specifically, she hates me eating doughnuts, insisting they’re destructive to my health and waistline. that’s why i neglected to tell her the real reason for our winter ascent of pike’s peak.during january and february, the manitou & pikes peak cog railway trains only go two-thirds of the way up the mountain. come march, weather permitting, they travel all the way to the summit.  i booked tickets for the season’s first trip to the top.unlike norma

terence crawford remains undefeated junior welterweight after beating felix diaz

terence “bud” crawford’s greatest competition, it seems, is running the rickety stairs up pikes peak near colorado springs. the undefeated junior welterweight cruised through another opponent saturday night, stopping former olympic silver medalist felix diaz at madison square garden in new york.crawford (31-0, 22 knockouts) peppered diaz (19-2) with vicious uppercuts and won nearly every round to retain his wbo and wbc titles at 140 pounds. after leaning on diaz in the late rounds, with well-timed flurries and an arsenal of varied styles, crawford forced diaz into retirement. his trainer, joel diaz, called off the fight after the 10th round.omaha’s crawford, who has trained in colorado springs for three years, including the stairway trail at the manitou springs incline, continued a torrid
