The Score

Posted on Tue, May 26, 2015 at 1:00 AM

+7 Throughout Memorial Day weekend, ceremonies across the area honor those who died while serving in the armed forces. Turns out that some people remembered it wasn’t all about pool openings and outdoor grills.

-3 Plans for a regional children’s hospital are dashed when VCU Medical Center and Bon Secours Richmond Health System bow out, saying it isn’t financially viable despite Bill and Alice Goodwin’s pledge of $150 million. Well, $150 million can’t get you as far as it used to.

+1 Gourmet popsicle-maker the King of Pops opens a walk-up window from its Clay Street shop. From here, in this rare atmospheric sliver of air where Richmond summer makes contact with plunging temperatures of a frozen-treat kitchen, emerges a global meteorological crisis.

+4 The RVA Creativity Awards announce winners across the city, handing out specially made trophies from local artists and craftsmen. We’re busy working on a sculpture for next year consisting of empty Ukrop’s potato salad containers and PBR cans.

-5 This spot intentionally left blank for Joe Morrissey content. After all, he spent most of last week requesting less media attention.
