George Karl in Denver Blogs: Another year of dealing with J.R. Smith

Three Denver blogs for the price of one.

Nate Timmons at Denver Stiffs calls the $4.5 million, one-year contract extension the Nuggets just gave coach George Karl a "no brainer." Agreed. Just hope he doesn't lose his head and kill J.R. Smith.

Becca Blond at the Colorado Independent writes that while gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper waffles about what stand to take on global warming, Glacier National Park is losing its namesakes. Guess they can't take the heat.

Chris at the Denver Infill blog thinks that our fair city has a shortage of "open space as destination." Where will the buffalo roam?
