1 Search Is On For Woman Who 'Credible Threatened' Colorado Schools
School systems in the Denver area are telling students to stay home today because of the threat posed by an 18-year-old Florida woman. Nearly a dozen school districts in Jefferson County have announced they will be closed and more are expected to do so as police continue to search for Sol Pais . The FBI says the woman expressed an infatuation with the Columbine school shooting and traveled to Denver from Miami. She reportedly bought a shotgun and ammunition soon after arriving in Colorado. According to Special Agent in Charge Dean Phillips, the FBI received information from the agency’s office in Miami and say she was last seen in the foothills. Why Denver? In the past, Pais has expressed an infatuation with the Columbine school shooting that took place 20 years ago this weekend. And while local officials say they’ve dealt with a number of people similarly fascinated with Columbine – this situation is different. Still, Phillips says there is no specific threat to any one school – and the FBI is asking for the public's help in locating Pais. They remind people that she is armed and considered dangerous and they should not approach her.

3 Donations Top $700 Million For Notre Dame
At last check, more than 700-million dollars in donations are pouring in today to help restore the famed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Donors from around the world – and some of France's richest families – have pledged to help a day after fire devastated the 12th century landmark on Monday. In a televised speech, French President Emmanuel Macron has called for unity and set an aggressive five-year goal to rebuild the iconic cathedral. Much of the roof collapsed, but the stone foundation survived along with the cathedral's famous twin bell towers. American offers of help include Apple CEO Tim Cook pledging that his company will donate to rebuilding efforts. Among the very rich people opening up their wallets? François-Henri Pinault , the CEO of Kering. As we reported yesterday, he’s forking over $113-million on his own. "This tragedy is striking all the French people, and beyond that, all those attached to spiritual values," Pinault says in a statement. "Faced with this tragedy, everyone wishes to give life back to this jewel of our heritage as soon as possible."
