The Score

+5 Richmonders set their clocks back as daylight saving time comes to an end. In related news, the microwave in our break room finally displays the correct time again.

+4 The Urbanna Oyster Festival draws Richmonders eastward in droves. You haven't lived until you've seen a pearl-spitting contest.

-2 In the stretch to Election Day, voters take a final blast of campaign ads, phone calls and candidate visits from politicians. After Tuesday, it's back to being ignored.

-3 The Times-Dispatch reports that state police and law-enforcement agencies of Henrico, Hanover and Chesterfield counties have estimated their security costs for presidential campaign visits at more than $219,000. Which begs the question: Will speeding tickets now count as campaign contributions?

0 We go to press not knowing who will become the next president of the United States. But one thing is certain: In four years, Bill's Barbecue will still be closed.
