Denver won't join the federal government in a crackdown on illegal immigration. On Monday, the city council passed an ordinance it says will build trust between immigrants and police. Critics, though, say it means Denver is becoming a sanctuary city. Then, Coloradans are headed to Texas to help with animal rescues -- a task that one worker says can save human lives as well. And, a coffee roaster in Pueblo uses power from the sun to finish the beans. Also, a Denver composer traveled to Mongolia to conduct the premiere of a piece he wrote for a musical ensemble there. Plus, Colorado Springs sculptor Senga Nengudi is one of 17 American artists headed to the Venice Biennale. Her work features everyday objects like pantyhose.
