The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Jul 12, 2011 at 6:00 PM

+4 Patient First marks its 30th year of treating Richmond patients for pinkeye, strep, bronchitis and the flu. We politely declined slices of anniversary cake.

+1 Richmond International Raceway gets a new president in Dennis Bickmeier, who moves here from Michigan. He would have arrived more quickly except he kept turning left on his drive down.

+6 An estimated 40,000 people show up to the annual Hanover Tomato Festival. One again, organizers of Yuma Lettuce Days are green with envy.

+1 City Council members consider whether to give themselves retirement pay after 10 years. Heck, we support any measures that will encourage City Council members to retire.

+2 In lieu of a news item here, we'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your gracious Google+ invitations. Can we get a few extras for our MySpace friends?
