Re: “The Score

"Tropical Storm Arthur is a dud" No. TS Arthur was never expected to amount to much at all for Richmond. Not one forecast ever had much effect expected except for coastal areas which were affected. As such, all the forecasts were spot on. All of them. Correction coming? I won't hold my breath.

Re: “Baseball Block

For the record, Gaston dropped 14 inches of rain on Shockoe Bottom, creating massive flooding and destruction at the end of August 2004.

Re: “Gathering Steam

A. "Southbound trains aren't delayed at Union Station while Amtrak detaches passenger cars and crowds riders into remaining cars." That is a bit of a red herring because there is still an annoying 30-45 minute wait while Amtrak switches from electric to diesel engines at Union Station when heading south to Richmond.
B. What is really worth an entire article to itself is the deplorable parking situation at Staples Mill Road Station. It is wonderful that people are riding the trains again and that they are filling up. But a couple weeks ago, cars were parked along median and grass strips as there were no spaces. There is no way an emergency vehicle could have made it through some areas. The alternative is to park at the Glenside Park and Ride which is laughable if you have luggage to tote. And there are no sideways between the Park and Ride and the train station, a good 10 minute walk without luggage. A shuttle would be nice.

Re: “Best Local Actress

Honaker is wonderful whether on the stage in a play or a musical. A real gem! A true treat for audiences.

Re: “Best Singer and Songwriter

Yay for Susan! Not only is she a great singer/songwriter but she generously donates so much of her talent and time to so many good causes. Page Wilson must be smiling!

Re: “Best Barbecue

Sorry folks but Ronnies on Main Street near Millies blows the competition away. Truly the best!
