The Score

Posted on Tue, Feb 24, 2015 at 1:26 PM

-8 Richmond digs out of its wintry mess following a snowstorm that keeps most kids home from school all week. And just when you thought your days of misery were over, the weekend ended with the Oscars.

+5 The University of Richmond names Ronald A. Crutcher — the president emeritus of Wheaton College and an accomplished cellist — as its 10th president. He’s already on a cost-cutting kick, serving as the musical entertainment for his own inauguration.

-6 A judge sentences the former first lady of Virginia, Maureen McDonnell, to 12 months and a day in federal prison on corruption charges. Which reminds us, is anyone keeping an eye on Jonnie Williams?

+1 Marking its 30th season by slowly teasing its lineup, Innsbrook After Hours reveals that Michael McDonald will perform in June. His demands included three trailers: one for his groupies over 50, one for his beard wrangler, and a third because he’s Michael McDonald.

+3 For the first time, three Richmond chefs are named as semifinalists for the James Beard Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic award: Peter Chang, Lee Gregory and Dale Reitzer. Another year, another snub for the wizards of Lee’s Chicken.
