Huggins was charged with possession of an unregistered destructive device in connection with the plot, the state's U.S. Attorney's Office said on Friday. The Tremonton Police Department was tipped off to the plot in February and launched an investigation with the FBI, prosecutors said.

U.S. appeals court sides with gay marriage proponents in Utah

Herre and her partner Mark watch the Utah Pride Parade in Salt Lake CityBy Jennifer Dobner SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Friday denied Utah's bid to further block legal recognition of about 1,300 same-sex weddings performed after the state's gay marriage ban was briefly lifted by a federal judge in December. Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes immediately vowed to do that in the next few days. U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby in Salt Lake City ruled in December that a voter-passed law restricting marriage to heterosexual couples only was unconstitutional, clearing the way for same-sex couples in the socially conservative and heavily Mormon state to wed.


Seattle's attorney apologizes for taking bags of marijuana to the office

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/12/2014 - 13:29
Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes on Friday apologized for violating workplace rules by bringing bags of marijuana he purchased from newly-opened Washington state pot shops back to his office. Holmes was one of the first people in line earlier this week as the first few marijuana retail shops opened across Washington state, where voters in 2012 sanctioned the sale of cannabis to adults for recreational use under a steeply taxed and regulated system. "At the end of the business day, I took the marijuana home and left it there, still unopened, before I participated in the second Community Walk of the Mayor's Summer of Safety." Holmes on Friday apologized, volunteered to donate $3,000 to a downtown homeless shelter, and voiced his on-going support for the state's landmark initiative. On Tuesday, a suit-and-tie clad Holmes could be seen holding up a brown paper bag carrying marijuana he bought minutes before at Seattle's first pot shop for a sea of journalists.
