Although Colorado's constitution bans same-sex marriage, a ruling from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver last week regarding a Utah case said states cannot prevent people from marrying based on their gender. That motivated Boulder County Clerk Hillary Hall to begin issuing marriage licenses, even though the 10th Circuit put its ruling on hold pending an appeal.

John Hickenlooper and Republican Attorney General John Suthers asked a federal court Wednesday to issue an injunction declaring Colorado's same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional.

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 09:04
Hundreds of thousands of people were without power on Tuesday after a deadly storm that brought tornadoes, high winds, hail and heavy rain to the central United States. Illinois was particularly hard hit as flooding, downed trees and fires caused by lightning strikes snarled traffic, cut power and delayed or canceled hundreds of flights in and out of Chicago. About 400,000 ComEd customers lost power in the storm and 153,000 remained without power on Tuesday afternoon, mainly in the region south of Chicago, the company said. Iowa also took a direct hit, with hail measuring 3 to 4 inches (7.6 to 10 cm) in diameter and peak winds of 90 mph (145 kph) recorded, said National Weather Service spokesman Pat Slattery.

Missouri town picks solvency over flood fight as river rises

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 08:53
By Jason McLure COLUMBIA Mo. (Reuters) - A small Missouri town repeatedly threatened by a rising Mississippi River is choosing to let residents fend for themselves this year rather than face potential bankruptcy to pay for another municipally organized fight against flooding.

"We're sad, we're hurt, we're disappointed," Mayor Jo Ann Smiley said.

Songs That Made Me Want to Work in MusicI've always known that I've wanted to work in the music industry -- my childhood was filled with mirror-dancing to Debbie Gibson and Tiffany with visions of future stardom and stadium tours. My adolescence was spent working at a record store and playing in punk bands hoping to someday become a punk icon. Although the performance aspect was always super fun, I really got a kick out of being an integral part of a team accomplishing the behind-the-scenes stuff for bands. I started my own music publicity firm almost two years ago. Basically my job is to take a bunch
