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
