The House and Senate have

in Williamsburg.

Exterior rennovations to the
Richmond capitol should be completed by
the end of the year, but crews will
then begin working on the interior.

Legislators say the move is
appropriate as the Commonwealth

anniversary of the founding of
Jamestown.

The only Virginia governors to be

Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson.

The capitol was moved to Richmond
in 1780.

Former Richmond International

Saturday night.

Sawyer made it one of the most
popular stops on the Nascar circuit.

In 1988, Sawyer transformed RIR
from a half mile oval to a
three-quarter mile tri-oval.

He ran the track until he sold it
to International Speedway Corporation
in 1999, and was Chariman of the Board
until his death.

Paul Sawyer was 88 years old.
