2. Speaking of cold, how much snow did you get?

3. Lisa Calderon announces she will launch Denver mayoral bid

4. William Coors, the former chair of Adolph Coors Co., died

The former chairman of Adolph Coors Co. and grandson of the brewing company’s founder died at 102 on Saturday in his home in Golden. Coors began his career with the company in 1939 and was chairman from 1959 to 2000.
