It is not a good day for Colonial Beach in the paper's again. But lets hope this puts some answers into solving the problems of the school. Its well over time to get things moving to correct problems in the past and move forward. Let the legal process take its course and hope facts will prevail.

Yep, the gloves will come off and CB will go down for the ten count. She will turn state's evidence and more ex-beach officials will be arrested.

Not a good day on the beach I guess... I still have questions about how they are including 2010 in the investigation... Am I missing something here?

She was put on administrative leave in May of 2009 and never came back... So how is the year 2010 involved as well?

[Be glad we didn't get the UMW President to come here and work... They GAVE HER $217,000 severance pay on top of her salary just to go away it seems.]

IMHO if the embezzlement from the Colonial Beach schools went on after she was put on administrative leave (May 2009) then is there still a culprit loose in the school system? Inquiring minds would like to know, Yes?

Well now we know why the school board insisted on having their own accounting system and we know for sure how impressionable, stupid and irrational our town council has been.

There seems to be a pattern of when the funds came up missing. Does anyone else see this? Also, it seems as if it continued after Dr. Howard's departure, and after Worrell's dismissal. Can't help but make one wonder if in fact there is more to come, as has been suggested.

"Worrell has been charged with 13 counts of “wrongfully and fraudulently use, dispose of, conceal or embezzle cash belonging to Colonial Beach Public Schools and having a value of $200 or more, which the accused received for another, or which the accused received by virtue of the accused’s office, trust or employment, or which a court, corporation, company or another person entrusted or delivered to the accused.” The time frames for the 13 felony charges are Feb. 25, 2008, to March 10, 2008; March 25, 2008, to April 10, 2008; April 25, 2008, to May 10, 2008; May 25, 2008, to June 10, 2008; June 25, 2008, to July 10, 2008; Aug. 24, 2008, to Sep. 10, 2008; Sept. 25, 2008, to Oct. 10, 2008; Oct. 25, 2008, to Nov. 10, 2008; Nov. 25, 2008, to Dec. 10, 2008; Dec. 25, 2008, to Jan. 10, 2009; Jan. 25, 2009, to Feb. 10, 2009; Feb. 25, 2009, to March 10, 2009; and March 25, 2009, to April 10, 2009."........."Colo nial Beach schools have been found to owe the town more than $600,000 in budget deficits throughout Worrell’s tenure as both Financial Director and acting superintendent."

You're right. I thought she was relieved earlier. Does anyone out there know if the school has converted to the town's accounting software system (Bright system, isn't it?), and if so, when it did?

latest update, with a picture:

and to Mscout ; if she invested 5 cents in 2009 and received 2 cents interest in 2010, another count would have to be charged against her.

I would like to thank Tim Trivett for his honesty and integrity in bringing this crime to the authorities. Sometimes, it is hard to do the right thing in a smalltown, thanks again.
