The long-suffering voice of the Denver Nuggets manages to remain on an even keel when the team is playing over its collective head, as well as when it's failing to meet expectations (a much more common scenario). Jerry Schemmel's no-muss-no-fuss delivery and the matter-of-fact tone he uses when expressing his opinions may be the main reason fans of the sub-par squad haven't yet leapt off the nearest cliff.

There may not have been enough money in the budget to furnish it, but there's no denying that the King Center, smack in the middle of Auraria, is a beautiful building. Constructed in raw concrete, glass and red brick, it works perfectly with the rest of the campus. The center is by AR7 Hoover Desmond Architects, with Ranko Ruzic serving as the principal designer; interior specialists Semple Brown Design did the performing-arts portions. The design features many cutting-edge elements, not the least of which is the deconstructivist handling of the gateway around the entrance. But the building is also cutting-edge from the standpoint of handicap accessibility: Even the theater's catwalks are open to wheelchair users, which makes the King Center the best arts facility in the world for people with disabilities.

Morning newscasts are all about balance; they should provide information about important matters yet keep the overall presentation light enough to give viewers a reason to get on with their day. Channel 4 has the mix just about right, thanks to the steady Kathy Soltero, the eccentric Jim Hooley, tightly wound sportscaster Mark McIntosh and weather everyman Dave Aguilera.

We include the phone number only as a courtesy, in case you're considering a career as a public servant. But be warned: Dialing it could cost you up to $500 an hour, the going rate for the top partners at The Firm. Still, that's a small investment if you have an eye on a position in a presidential cabinet -- Democratic or Republican. Former Denver mayor Federico Peña hadn't been with the law firm of Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber (and then) Strickland for six months when he got an emergency call from Bill Clinton in December 1992 to become Secretary of Transportation (Peña later served as Secretary of Energy, too). And the process repeated itself this past December, when lawyer/lobbyist Gale Norton was tapped from the firm to join George W. Bush's administration as Secretary of the Interior. (As for the missing Strickland, his name came off the firm's stationery when he became the U.S. Attorney for Colorado -- a position the Democrat had to surrender shortly after Bush's election.)

WB2Day is a work in progress, to put it politely, but that hasn't stopped Dan Daru from developing into an entertaining wild card. He's twisted, unpredictable and funny -- and deserves all the attention, as well as slack-jawed stares, that he's received.
