+6 One game shy of the Sweet 16, the VCU Rams return home to cheering fans, congratulating them on a successful season. After all, they're still better than Duke.

+5 Shamrock the Block lures more than 25,000 green-shirted, bead-wearing, plastic-cup-bearing revelers to Shockoe Bottom. Half of them still think they were celebrating St. Shaka's Day.

+3 Trained on a nest for weeks, the Times-Dispatch Eagle Cam captures the hatching of the two chicks, watched over by parents Virginia and James. The last Eagle to draw this much attention in Richmond spent two years in prison.

-2 A woman tells NBC-12 that she was written a ticket for destruction of property after Richmond police spotted her daughter making chalk doodles on the rocks at Belle Isle. Fortunately her daughter isn't a Grateful Dead fan.

-1 Concerned parents and officials in Chesterfield County meet about a new designer drug popping up among kids — a hallucinogen called 25i. Teenagers taking the drug are moody, sweaty, agitated and prone to seizures. Or they might just be listening to dub step.
