+8 For several nights in a row — at the river, in the counties and over The Diamond, fireworks light up local skies to celebrate a long Fourth of July weekend. If Richmond still had ramparts we're sure they would have been gleaming as well.

-1 After captivating and annoying residents and sparking a spoof Twitter account, the West End bear walks into a trap set by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. Apparently the game wardens faked a summer sale at Short Pump.

-2 Passengers in Richmond getting off a southbound train are more than 13 hours late after a mechanical problem leaves them stuck overnight. First there was the "Poop Cruise" and now the "Poo Poo Choo Choo."

+1 The executive producer of the controversial local reality show "The Real Babymamas of Richmond" apologizes for delaying episode three while teasing about receiving a "promising phone call" that "Hollywood is watching." Denzel Washington is in talks to play Mayor Jones.

+3 Recording artist Elliott Yamin, who grew up in Richmond and had his rise to fame chronicled on "American Idol," returns for a cameo performance with local bands at an informal backyard concert called Crowefest. So where you at, D'Angelo?
