I always try to pass on to you any Ukrop’s nuggets I run across. Today an interesting one popped up in my email. I don’t really think it has anything to do with the sale rumors, but since so many of you are interested in what happens with the company, I figured I should let you know. It appears the auction of the former Ukrop’s building in Roanoke has been postponed. Here’s a link to the story.
As for today’s water cooler talk in Richmond…. Marty Jewell pleads no contest to driving drunk in Richmond. We
learned today he had a blood alcohol level of .11, which is over the legal limit of .08 but below the .15 that requires mandatory jail time. Jewell did spend the night in jail when he was arrested. He was given 90 days today with all of it suspended if he stays out of trouble for 3 years. He has to pay a $250 fine and to pay for VASAP classes, which is a state-run alcohol treatment program. Jewell’s license was suspended for one year but he is allowed to drive to and from work. It looks like he got the proper sentence for a first time DUI misdemeanor… but I’m curious what you think of the matter. Let me know.
