Crook and Jefferson County have each had one call, but no one has stopped in to get one.

 

One of the plantiffs in Oregon's same sex marriage case, Ben West, spoke with Lars Larson about his new ability to get married.

 

Lars thought county clerks waiving fees on Oregon's first day of same sex marriage was special treatment.

 

"We never thought our family was going to be recognized in this way.  We never thought we'd have the same security.  So if they're willing to waive a $5 fee.  These people have been waiting for decades.  And after the announcement  --- families flying in -- the five dollar waiving of the fee ofrwaiving the 72 hour waiting period, may be beside the point."

 

Oregon is the 18th state to legalize gay marriage in the last ten years.
