Hanley Ramirez was smiling Sunday. Clayton Kershaw wasn't. Whereas Ramirez was able to pinch-hit a day after he bruised his surgically repaired right thumb, Kershaw was informed by the Dodgers he would pitch in another minor league game before making his return from the disabled list. Asked whether he was fine with the team's decision, Kershaw replied, "Not really. " Sidelined because of a strained back muscle, Kershaw hasn't pitched for the Dodgers since the their season opener in Australia on March 22. Kershaw wanted to pitch for the Dodgers on Wednesday in Minnesota.

Colorado kicked off 2014 with a historic first as legal sales of marijuana for recreational use officially began at stores around the state. Although many states allow medical marijuana, Colorado and Washington in 2012 became the first states in the nation to legalize pot for recreational purposes for adults. Washington is expected to pave the way for recreational pot dispensaries to open later this year. PHOTOS: Richest and poorest cities in America Nearly 350 retail marijuana licenses have been issued to Colorado businesses, according to the Marijuana Enforcement Division, the agency under Colorado's Department of Revenue that regulates the industry.

Hyun-Jin Ryu must not like Los Angeles or Dodger Stadium or organist Nancy Bea Hefley. He can't get it going here this season. Away from Dodger Stadium, he's a regular road warrior (3-0, 0.00 earned-run average). At home, he's not even a regular Joe (0-2, 11.08). This strange Jekyll and Hyde routine continued Sunday afternoon, with Ryu giving up six runs in his five-plus innings, leaving the Dodgers 6-1 losers to the Rockies and stuck on 9,999 franchise wins. The Dodgers finished 4-6 on their 10-game homestand, and after a day off Monday open a nine-game road trip Tuesday in Minnesota.

Dave Mustaine may be best known for fronting the thrash-metal band Megadeth, but he's lately implied an interest in a different kind of metal -- namely tinfoil, for folding into hats, out of an escalating and bizarre far-right paranoia. The singer told an audience at a Singapore show last week that he believed President Obama secretly planned three recent shootings as a precedent to steal Americans' guns.  "Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban," he said.

Emily and Steve Goldfield spent the last week in Colorado celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary -- amid biblical rains. That wasn't quite what they had in mind.

Colorado on New Year's Day became the nation's first state to permit the sale of recreational marijuana. And since Jan. 1, interest in travel to Denver has jumped. Coincidence? Probably not. Data research from a travel website found that searches for airline travel deals to Denver have been outpacing searches for all other U.S. destinations, with a big increase jump starting Jan. 1. The study by Boston-based found that interest in travel to Denver climbed 6.3% above the national average in December and then by 14% during the first week of January.

KEY MOMENT: Jamey Wright gave up an 11th-inning double to Rockies pinch-hitter Brandon Barnes, after which Wright was replaced by left-hander J.P. Howell. Facing the left-handed-hitting Charlie Blackmon, Howell gave up a run-scoring single that broke a 2-2 stalemate. The run was the first of three in the inning for the Rockies. Adrian Gonzalez closed the gap to 5-4 with a two-run home run in the bottom half of the inning. ON THE MOUND: Josh Beckett pitched what was by far his best game of the season, limiting the Rockies to two runs and four hits over eight innings.

Several Colorado fourth-graders face disciplinary action for bringing their grandparents' legally purchased pot to school and apparently selling it to a few classmates, according to school officials. The pupils, three 10-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl at Monfort Elementary School in Greeley, took the pot to school Monday for resale on campus, officials said. The marijuana appears to have been legally purchased by adults -- grandparents in two families -- and no charges were expected to be filed, John Gates, director of safety for Weld County School District 6, told reporters, according to the Associated Press.

They're the Buridan's Ass bandits! The feminist police who patrol academia for signs of "rape culture" must have run out of fraternity houses to pick on, so they've decided to go after -- philosophy professors. Yes, you read that right. You might think philosophy profs are tweedy, elbow-patched pipe smokers who spend most of their time poring over “Kritik der reinen Vernunft” or debating whether it would be ethically OK to throw a fat man in front of a runaway trolley so as to save five other lives.

In a regular season when so much has gone right for the Ducks, Teemu Selanne closed it perfectly Sunday by tugging a fellow Anaheim legend onto the ice for a final skate and embrace in front of an adoring sellout crowd. The Ducks (54-20-8) produced their NHL-best 26th comeback victory with a 3-2 overtime triumph over the Colorado Avalanche at Honda Center. Afterward, Selanne, 43, found his friend and former Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who's expected to join him in retirement at season's end. “Teemu's such a class act and he's known for a while that this possibly could be my last game,” Giguere said after his 33-save night for the Central Division champions.

DENVER - It was spring break, and Levy Thamba, a 19-year-old college student from Africa, had checked into a fourth-floor hotel room with three of his buddies. They had come from their small college in Wyoming looking for an adventure. No one is sure how much Thamba ate of the marijuana cookie purchased by one of his friends at a local pot shop. But soon the engineering student, who had never tried marijuana before, began acting strangely hostile, tearing around the room and pulling pictures from the wall.

LOS ALGODONES, Mexico - Osvel Hinojosa knew that an infusion of water would bring the Colorado River delta back to life. But in just a few days, a U.S.-Mexican experiment to revive the delta environment has exceeded his expectations. The water is running deeper, faster and wider than anticipated in a channel that was once bone-dry. Hinojosa has spotted hawks, egrets and ospreys flying above the newly flowing water. He's even seen beavers. "It's just amazing to see that we can recover the river and see it alive again," said Hinojosa, water and wetlands program director at Pronatura Noroeste, a Mexican water conservation group.

A Colorado third-grader who shaved her head to express solidarity with a cancer-stricken friend may be exempted from a charter school's dress code that bans shaved heads. Jamie Renfro said Sunday that Caprock Academy in Grand Junction had asked her daughter, Kamryn, to stay away from campus until her hair grew back because she had violated its dress code. “We do sign that we understand and agree to the rules every year...but honestly, I never thought my 9-year-old daughter would do something so courageous, brave and selfless,” Renfro said in a public post on Facebook . She kept Kamryn at home on Monday and took her out with Delaney Clements, the 11-year-old friend who started chemotherapy last month, for the third time.
