The Score

Posted on Tue, Oct 6, 2015 at 11:00 AM

-8 Days of rain and the lingering threat of Hurricane Joaquin soak the Richmond area, trigger power outages and cause a slew of outdoor events to be moved or canceled. The James was angry, my friends ... like an old man trying to return soup in a deli!

+5 The ribbon is officially cut on the Virginia Capital Trail, a 52-mile, $74 million route for biking, walking and running along Route 5 between here and Williamsburg. And Richmond drivers will still figure out a way to drive on it.

+1 Richmond BizSense reports that the Blair House, one of the earliest homes on Monument Avenue, is listed for $2.85 million. Pay all that and you still have to look at the Jefferson Davis statue.

+1 Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican presidential hopeful, arrives to campaign with a town hall at the University of Richmond. Which is approximately one more campaign event than Jim Gilmore has held.

+3 While declining to reveal the price, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts says it’s installed one of its most expensive purchases, a 1779 painting by Benjamin West. Don’t they know Benjamin Moore is so much cheaper?
