Posted on Wed, Jun 22, 2005 at 4:00 AM

-4

-4

Republican gubernatorial candidate Jerry Kilgore says he isn't debating if the debate includes independent candidate H. Russell Potts Jr. Lesson: You may be leaving playgrounds far behind, but there will always be a bully.



-2

Henrico County residents complain that nearby quarry blasting is damaging their homes and shaking up their routines. Lesson: Once you have a mortgage, explosives aren't as much fun as they used to be.



0

City Council and the mayor get warmer on a budget compromise. Still, legal maneuvering isn't ruled out. Lesson: Don't take the law into your own hands. ... take 'em to court.



+3

In the Virginia Wine Competition, Hanover County's James River Cellars wins the Governor's Cup for its Dolce Vino dessert wine. Lesson: Things get a lot sweeter when you turn 21.
