• Arizona cities buried in rare snowstorm as much of U.S. enjoys balmy weather: "Parts of Arizona will remain buried under snow Monday as a surprising late-winter onslaught paralyzed travel and closed schools. Yet much of the eastern two-thirds of the country will continue to enjoy unseasonably warm temperatures, a day before spring officially starts."
• 4 killed in shooting at French Jewish school: "A gunman opened fire on a Jewish school in southern France Monday, killing four people - the third shooting in the area in 10 days. The shooting in the city of Toulouse left a teacher and three children dead, including a 3-year-old, said local prosecutor Michel Valet. A fourth child was injured."
• Gas prices up for 10th straight day: "The national average price for a gallon of gasoline rose for the 10th straight day on Monday to $3.842. That is now only about 6.6% below the record high of $4.114 from July 2008."
• UPS expands its reach with $6.8 billion deal: "United Parcel Service is expanding its global reach by agreeing to acquire rival delivery service company TNT Express in a $6.8 billion deal.
