the score

A weekly ranking of the city zeitgeist

Posted on Tue, Dec 3, 2002 at 4:00 AM

The $250 million, 50-acre Rocketts Landing development along the James moves a step closer to reality after the state approves an environmental cleanup plan for the site. After all, no one wants an apartment with an eerie green glow.

score: +1

Bank robberies plague the area, setting a record for the Richmond-Petersburg region. Of course, robbers continue to show no interest in one account: the Commonwealth of Virginia.

score: -4

Clyde and Edith Shinault win a second big Virginia Lottery prize — in addition to the $9.7 million jackpot they won 11 years ago. Yeah, but they gotta pay taxes on that.

score: 0

Richmond celebrates Thanksgiving. There are so many deep-fried turkeys that the governor declares a cooking-oil drought.

score: +3

this week's score: -2
