Walter Rugaber is a man of many talents. He's already been a publisher for a local newspaper .. now he's trying his hand as president of a local university. All the while -- proving he's fit to wear both hats.

Rugaber recently retired as publisher of the Roanoke Times. After serving eight years on the Hollins Board of Trustees he suddenly found himself as the school's interim president when Janet Rasmussen vacated the position after five years in office. He squashes the rumor that Hollins will open its doors to men, a trend that has increased over the past few decades in women's colleges. When asked about another trend, that of media outlets making cuts to stay competitive in a flooded market, Rugaber says it may be a fight but that local news outlets like newspapers and television stations will survive.

Rugaber says he's enjoying his stint as Hollins president but is also looking forward to retiring for real. The search for a new president will begin this fall.

Chicago had cows.
Norfolk had mermaids.
Richmond has fish.
It's a citywide public art project.
And it's this week's Virginia Profile.
Richmond Bureau Chief Ellen Qualls puts the puns to work over the art that the city hopes will hook you.

(( The project's called "Go Fish," but the name implies the game where you don't get the card you want.
But with 200 sculptures around the city, Richmond has at least one you want this summer.
They range from the ancient -- like the pharoah fish Aten-Ra-K-Fish, who rules over a downtown plaza... to the very modern deconstructed version just a few yards away.

((UM IT'S DIFFERENT. YEAH.. A LOT OF HISTORY. LIKE WE WENT TO THIS CIVIL WAR BUILDING AND STUFF. AND LIKE THERE'S NOT A LOT OF STUFF ABOUT WHERE WE'RE FROM. SO JUST BEING HERE IT'S LIKE JUST NEAT TO LEARN ALL THE DIFFERENT THINGS. Educational fish. YEAH SURE. EDUCATIONAL FISH.))

We even in got into the spirit of the thing, shooting an interview through a fisheye lens.
But NOT everybody's into every fish -- including our interview subject.
[sot tape 16:32:23 ]

((THERE ARE A COUPLE IN THE FOUNTAIN THAT ARE REALLY, REALLY GOOD. And are there are some that are kind of substandard? YEAH. LIKE THE ONE ACROSS THE STREET. PRETTY BAD ART. BUT YOU KNOW, SOME PEOPLE LIKE 'EM. A LOT OF PEOPLE I WORK WITH ACTUALLY HAVE BOUGHT A COUPLE OF THEM.))

And everywhere, reminders that fish are food.
Especially rockfish.
And especially, apparently, the Lifesavers rockfish... where some art observers seems to have a sweet tooth and sticky fingers.

((THEY'RE CERTAINLY RIDICULOUS AND THEY MAY SEEM RIDICULOUSLY BIG TO YOU, BUT YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT VIRGINIA'S STATE RECORD IS ABOUT THREE POUNDS HEAVIER... BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.))
[runs= 18]


The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is in on the act, putting the "real" in rod and reel, with the only fish they claim is anatomically correct.
You be the judge.
The actual fish have made a resurgence in Virginia's waterways, including the James River ... and it's a point of pride for the city that has NOT gone unnoticed.
[sot tape 16:24:00 ]

((You're from North Dakota. What does it make you think of Richmond? KELLY KRIEG: UM, I DON'T KNOW. IT JUST BRINGS OUT THE RIVER, HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO THEM AND EVERYTHING.))
[runs= 08]


So the fish will be around the city until September, when they head off to the highest bidders.
Until then, they're tempted by the water, but stuck on their stands for all to see.
