  1. Hal Jordan says:

    Well…that’s disappointing.

  2. livein22611 says:

    Congratulations!!!

  3. Tony Parrott says:

    Although I didn’t support Jim or Bev I wish them the best of luck. I hope they make the right kind of difference.

  4. Yay! Congrats to Mr Brinkmeier! People agree that it is time for a change!!!!

    • Bobs Sports Store says:

      I believe in democracy, but some times it does baffle me! Why change the person who is working for the kids and moving things foward. I also think the most positive change won’t come from the addition of Mr. Brinkmeier, but rather the subtraction of Robina!

      • What was moved forward by the current SB, besides the new school? Seriously, nothing else has happened, and nothing else will happen until the SB stands up to the BOS and demands increased funding for schools. I’d gladly pay higher taxes to improve the course selection. I don’t think every kid can handle advanced work and those courses shouldn’t be dumbed down to accommodate them. Be realistic.

        • you could always donate to the program(s) of your choice to show your support, instead of waiting for the government to take your money. In fact, shouldn’t you be all for private funding since it’s a cornerstone of the conservative philosophy? Then again, what’s in a name?

          • Right Winger says:

            Public education is to be paid by the public through taxes. If the the Federal and State Governments shirk on that duty, then it’s up to the localities to ensure that the public schools are properly funded, and EVERYONE should pay their fair share. That’s the cornerstone the country was built upon, not some political ideology.

          • Yes, but how much is too much? This county has plenty of revenue and the students are far from lacking programs and resources, especially compared to a lot of school systems in this country. You could always send your kids to private school if you feel you are not getting enough. Personally, I’m satisfied. Don’t Tread On Me.

          • Right Winger says:

            When I was in school, we had a plethora of alternative choices including cosmetology, woodworking, electronics, auto body, small engine repair, computer classes. And my school was smaller than CCHS currently is and it was the only HS as well. Private Schools do not offer those types of courses, public schools should. The BOS needs to ensure the schools are properly funded to offer a WIDE ranging curriculum, not just dumbed-down “advanced courses”.

          • Fly on the wall says:

            Talk about being late to the party. Reid, clearly you don’t follow things on this site too closely. If you did, you’d know that RW – while clearly a pompous blowhard at times – is not aligned politically to the right; his moniker comes from his soccer days. I rarely agree with even 20% of what he posts, but – still – be careful with your assumptions when you don’t know someone.

          • Pompous? Moi?
            Blowhard…..yeah, you’re probably right on that one. 😉

      • livein22611 says:

        Dear Bob,
        You really need to get out of the sports store a bit more and really pay attention to what is going on. There is a difference between working for the kids and working for the superintendent. She didn’t move anything forward except her contempt for Robina. I think it’s going to be interesting without Robina on the board. Who will everyone blame now?

        • Tony Parrott says:

          Part I
          So a board hires a CEO to run a company. If the board doesn’t support the person they hired how can the CEO be successful? Same goes for the superintendant. I believe he had support from the majority of the SB but one member (and her shadow) worked endlessly to go in a different direction and undermine the SB and superintendant. Even the BOS disagrees on decisions but once a vote is cast they move on and make it work. Robina should have learned this from the BOS. God help us if she ends up on another board in this county; we all know how she acts when she doesn’t get her way….
          Part II
          Do you really think Robina is going away? She spent ten years dogging the school district and four years on the SB dogging it from the inside. She isn’t going anywhere; at least I didn’t see a for sale sign in front of her house the last time I passed by.

          • Personally, I would like to see more of her. She uncovers a lot of “hidden” gems that the school board before her tried to hide. If it wasn’t for her we (tax payers) wouldn’t have found out. I guess it all falls to which side of the fence you are on. I believe in true facts, not a smokescreen.

          • Fly on the wall says:

            “Hidden” gems…like her emails to town poohbahs about Mosby that she wanted kept on the low? Like her leading the decision to purchase a set of plans for a middle school with no input from the high school staff to see if it would actually work? The building being built has been greatly expanded from what they purchased because they bought a middle school plan for a high school program.

  5. CollegeKnowledge says:

    Many congratulations to Beth Leffel and Jim Brinkmeier. I know they will work hard to get CCPS on the right track.

  6. Because I Care says:

    I don’t know, looks like the same ole group in the BOS. And because of that, I don’t think we’ll see much change for CCPS or anything else for that matter.

    • Nope. The School Board can say they will work to improve classes and courses, but they really can’t do anything because of the BOS.

    • livein22611 says:

      It’s the same ole group because no one ran against any of the current members. You have to create change, not just wish that it happens. If everyone is so upset about how the county is being run, why didn’t anyone run??

      • Stonebroke says:

        I’m happy with my district representative! So why would I run? Can’t say the same for the other districts in CC.

  7. Stonebroke says:

    I’d like to thank White Post for doing a fine job once again! (cough,cough)Thank you…Thank you very much!

  8. M. R. Taylor says:

    So…one hothead from White Post was replaced by another one. Honestly…what are the folks around me thinking? Oh well…ya gets what ya votes in, unfortunately. At least Reiger’s desired-for write-in victory for Robina was snuffed resoundingly and we can turn the page from her contentious, divisive 4-year term on the board.

    • In all honesty, Robina was the only one who really did anything at all, whether you liked her or not. I would have preferred she channeled her energy into getting more money for the schools from the tightwads on the BOS, but she worked for them instead.

  9. As former Clarke resident, it is always nice to check back in and hear what the county is up to. A new school, same tight community, same beautiful landscape, same wonderful people. Just read yesterday that the new school is looking into setting up a memorial to remember kids we’ve lost over the years. Heart warming. According to the message board, the big complaints about elected officials are that they don’t spend enough tax payer money on schools and that they don’t change anything. Just looking in from the outside, I congratulate you on how good you have it.

  10. I experienced firsthand the amount of dedication that my mother put into serving on the school board for these past four years. She and other members worked hard on a thankless job, getting blamed for every construed failure and little credit for success. I know she appreciated every supporting message she received, but also every well-worded message that was counter to her beliefs, and went to lengths to hear every voice. She worked hard and fought for what was right, logical, and legally sound, even when the going got tough and certain fights were taken to a far too personal level.
    I respect and thank my mother for all she has accomplished in the past few years, and what I’m sure she will continue to accomplish. I also respect and thank her as a constituent. My interests were served as a student, and I was given opportunities to take excellent courses and further my knowledge. Arriving at engineering college this year, I could already write five page papers, analyze dynamic systems, do basic programming.
    That being said, don’t believe everything you read in the internet. It’s a shame our county’s popular public forum has become an anonymous place to post unfounded dribble on subjects that are often far deeper than the posters comprehend them to be. Many of the comments on this website are sheer hearsay, or come from people with very skewed interests, shrouded by anonymity. If you really believe something, why wouldn’t you publish it under your name?
    Hopefully mom will have more time to skype me from Philadelphia now. Best of luck to Mr. Brinkmeier, and hopefully he’ll keep an open mind to more experienced individuals.

    Tl;Dr, Unfounded claims and people with a lack of understanding of the actual inner dynamics of local politics lead to the election of a less experienced candidate over someone who has represented the best interests of CCPS for the past four years.

    • Bill Bell says:

      And proud you should be Reid! Your mother is a wonderful person who did and outstanding job under very difficult circumstances. She is to be commended and thanked, and you can both hold your heads high in my book.

      All the best to you both.

  11. George Archibald says:

    Thanks for the results. Good reporting. You are Berryville/Clarke County’s “newspaper of record.” Congrats to the winners — 99%, 66%, 57% of the vote is a solid mandate any way one looks at it. Now for the heavy lifting as they take office for the next few years. The losing candidates waged quality races. Thanks to losing school board incumbent Jennifer Welliver for her service and quality campaign. Winner Jim Brinkmeier, a very decent man, waged a strong door-to-door campaign and matched Democrat Jennifer on Josephine Street, which is probably why he won.

    • Thank you George but FYI, I am independent. When running for school board and otherwise. I vote for the person, based on their viewpoints, not a political party.

      • Right Winger says:

        Really, then why were you at the Democratic gathering at Focaccia Grill?

        http://www.clarkedailynews.com/election-2011-clarke-county-virginia/26628

        “…Across town, many area Democrats gathered to await election results at Focaccia Italian Grill.

        School Board member Jennifer Welliver echoed Brinkmeier’s comments in what would eventually turn out to be a losing night for her campaign…”

        • I was at a gathering that was planned, organized, and paid for by Janet and myself. The democrats decided to have theirs there about a week ago. Separate party, separate tabs, but lots of the same friends. I don’t believe party politics belong in small town local elections. Actually, they aren’t serving the larger government very well either IMO.

    • DAWN PRICE says:

      He never came to my door.. Jennifer sure did . Jennifer thanks for all your help and listening to my issues

      • Right Winger says:

        They both came to my door. She just asked for my vote, he actually talked to me.

        • So did you vote for him because he “talked” to you or because there’s an (R) next to his name?
          Just curious.

  12. Syd Barett says:

    I LOVE THIS Town … 🙂

  13. Thank you Clarke County for the support you gave me throughout this election. I may have fallen hard at the polls, but I do not regret one bit of the journey. The Republican Party of Virginia and this area has it’s act together, and we as Democrats must show that we have more than just a faint pulse or we shall no longer be considered the opposition party, but a third party. Congrats to everyone who put their all int this election. This is not the end my dear friends, for this is only the beginning.

    God bless you all!!!
