In the big picture, Tom Beef Jerksa is the absolute worst president, board member, and human being Estes Park has ever had to suffer through since the dinosaurs extincted.

I hope he moves his fat Chris Christie *** to Atlantic City and opens a casino for the blind, where he serves as the knife-throwing act.

"right people for the right reasons". What is this board afraid of? Who are these "right people"? This entire article was a shakin in their boots type of verbage. I have never seen such unprofessional dialogue to recruit board members. Maybe now that the 2 folks mentioned in the article are leaving there may be more interest but hopefully this will not turn into a 3 ring circus if in fact there are several candidates and the "past powers that be" demonize them to get the "right people" in office. There is zero trust in this town toward the school district and for good reason. Think about what is best for our kids rather than how you want to continue to monopolize power. Not once in this article were kids considered or mentioned...it's what you learned from being on the school board. Who cares? It's not about you! This piece of propaganda is unacceptable and childish at best.

Stop subscribing to this horrible rag until they get better coverage and start to actually cover events instead of just lob up softballs and reprint press releases. Where is the update on the murder that took place last November? My god, if this paper was in Cleveland, their coverage would be blaming the kids for disappearing for 10 years without telling anyone where they were.

I do not subscribe to the Trail. It is a waste of 75 cents. It's free online but that's not the point. The point is will things change or improve with Todd and Tony gone from the school board?
They can only improve

But the point is, doesn't our local media play some role in allowing them to run roughshod over the rest of the populace, by not pointing out their boorish behavior.

Comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable.

That previously when some one wanted to run for the board, Pat Whedan, The soon to be former board member/president made it clear he did not want her on the board because she was to likely to be the opposing voice to his "master plan", and should abstain from voting on certain issues as he saw fit.
That's the reason for the verbage of "the right people", because Jirsa always wanted to hand pick the boeard members so he could always get his way, and he kicked severa;l teachers to the curb that he had personal, not professional issues with.
With him gone, I think that more people will be willing to step up to tha challenge representing the needs of the students and the schools itself, as should have been all along.
Not to be used as a personal platform to push his Elkhorn project and personal ventures and gains during what was supposed to be for school busines, also maybe the covert one on one meetings to get around the "sunshine" laws will end and all business will be conducted as an actual board with full exposure and open dialogue for all.
Nice to see him moving on, especially when you remember he was never actuall ELECTED to the board in the first place, and then forced himself in as president before anyone really had time to think about it.
Things should only get better from here.

that had to miss school and do various unprofessional sound checks and lobbying on the Elkhorn Bailout because Jirkus the Circus was too cheap to pay for real help
Very unethical

but who would say anything? The Elkhorn Project had nothing to do with the school district so to pull these students out of classes for his personal, non-school related trip was a blantant conflict of interest and in my mind unethical. Now if these kids wanted to go to Denver to lobby with Todd during summer break that's different. His ilk needs to go away and November is not soon enough.

Let's start the RJN campaign and run this loser out of town. Start a petition on the White House website, put up yard signs, pull the kids out of school, and chase Jerky-boy with pitchforks until he is across one of our heavily defended borders and can never worm his way back in wearing a wig and high heels.

the reporter assigned to this story only received e-mails back from those two. The Trailer Trash Gazette doesn't even have their reporters interview people in person, they just send them e-mails and hope for responses.

Mr Cordsen please EDIT ARTICLES BEFORE POSTING THEM. The amount of grammatical and spelling errors in this piece is outrageous.

I'm real certain the Trail and its people do not care about what gets written on this forum. This venue is the lowest of the low of forums - the domination of it by the bi-polar troll is a good example of that. Write to Cordsen by email or {gasp} by writing and posting a real letter if you want to get a point across to him......
