Today, President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet in Vietnam. It's their first encounter since the Singapore summit last year. North Korea's nuclear weapons program is expected to be a key topic of discussion between the two leaders. 

An inversion that's left the Denver area in a brownish haze is expected to continue through this afternoon.  The state's air quality watchdog issued an action day alert yesterday, triggering restrictions on indoor burning as well as a warning to those with respiratory problems.  The alert says poor visibility brought on by the inversion will probably last through 4 p.m. today.  Drivers in the area covered by the air quality alert are being asked to drive as little as possible until the air clears. 

Rockies superstar third baseman Nolan Arenado looks to be sticking with the team for the foreseeable future.  Both sides have agreed to an eight-year contract extension worth around a reported 260-million-dollars.  That would make him the highest paid position player in the sport at more than 32-million a year.  The new deal also has a reported opt-out after three years and a no trade clause.
