“I got my marijuana license right here,” the man in the coffee shop told me, then the shop owner pitched in, “My license is by the cash register.” The topic came up while having a friendly chat with people in rural Colorado.

Our first stop was Denver, where her parents live, and then we moved on to Crestone, where her sister and her husband live.

Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
The last couple of years I’ve been doing a flashback to talk about the Hawkeye football season plus basketball, wrestling and what was going on in the world at that time.
This time we’re going back to the year 1977.
Once again I have to thank the late Al Grady for getting most of my information on the Hawkeye football team. I used the book Al wrote, “25 Years with the Fighting Hawkeyes,” and I still enjoy reading it today.
Bob Commings was head coach for the Hawkeye football team, Lute Olsen was the head man for basketball and Dan Gable led the wrestlers.
