The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Wed, Jan 5, 2011 at 1:00 AM

+10 Filled with joy, hope and high expectations, Richmonders loudly ring in a new year. Even City Councilman Charles Samuels is spotted with a small noisemaker, resolving to kick up his wingtips a decibel higher this year.

-4 Speaking of City Hall, Councilman Marty Jewell asks for an investigation into whether a council liaison inappropriately touched another council liaison. If only we'd known this stuff goes on, we could have gotten out of so many parking tickets. 

0 The T-D reports on coyote sightings in Chesterfield County. And from Short Pump, calls continue to pour in citing a cougar overpopulation at Kona Grill.  

-2 A fire leaves no injuries but heavily damages Zorba's Greek and Italian restaurant in the West End. Which fills the air with plumes of unfortunate but really delicious smelling smoke. 

+1 At Richmond International Airport, the T-D reports, a 21-year-old man from Charlottesville is arrested after stripping down to his underwear to protest security screenings. He did not appear to be carrying a weapon.
