The Score

A weekly rating of the city's zeitgeist.

Posted on Wed, May 30, 2007 at 4:00 AM

+7Richmond marks its 400th birthday with concerts by The Roots and the Richmond Symphony, a visit from a 65-foot replica of the Godspeed and a giant fireworks celebration. If Wilder bends over, will someone smack him for good luck?



0In Richmond Circuit Court, Johnny Johnson begins his efforts to prove that wholesaler Supervalu Inc. drove his Community Pride chain out of business and damaged his health in the process. Clean-up in aisle revenge and destroy.



-4The city auditor finds more than 800 instances of unaccounted-for gas spending and questionable fueling for Richmond's fleet of government vehicles, the T-D reports. The cost of fraud per gallon just keeps rising in this town.



+3Richmond's newest Fortune 500 company, paper manufacturer MeadWestvaco, breaks ground on its downtown office near the Federal Reserve building and the James River. Now, if we can only get Dwight Schrute to transfer to the Richmond branch.



+2A new bus ride launches from GRTC Transit System, offering morning commuters a direct trip from Richmond to Fredericksburg. It's called "The Civil War Re-enactor Express."
