So now it’s a crime to not have your wipers on while it’s raining. HYLYFM

Even when its just super cloudy or foggy. Especially if you're driving a grey car.

Stupid is as stupid does. If you need to pass a law that makes criminals of people for not turning on their wipers then you need mental health help big time. If you as citizens think this is a great idea then you need mental health help. WTFU

#TBT On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy and begin the liberation of German-occupied France. The Clarke Courier reported on the D-Day invasion two days later in its June 8 edition. The article began, “The Allied invasion is moving inland along a 100-mile front of the Normandy coast between Cherbourg and Le Havre, the headquarters of the Allied Expeditionary Force stated yesterday.” The June 15 edition included a photo of soldiers from Clarke County. “Probably seeing action in France, these boys are pictured in a more happy time before they left Berryville in 1941.” They are identified as Walter Shackleford, Ray Shifflett, Marvin May, Edgar Longerbeam, and Wilfred Ternary.

Buy a bit of Berryville history! The current owners of 108, 106, and 102 W. Main St. – collectively known as the Battletown Inn – are selling all its furniture and fixtures beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday, June 9, before reopening the business later this year after years of it sitting unused. The main building dates to 1802 when it was the home of Sarah Stribling, daughter of Berryville’s namesake, Benjamin Berry. Stribling opened a boarding house in 1805, added another building in 1809, and sold the property to Charles Showers in 1811. During the Civil War it was used as field hospital. The house remained in the Showers family until Lewis Glover bought it, and his daughter Sarah Glover Ellder renamed it the Sign of the Motor Car Inn in 1917. Morton Mumma bought the buildings in 1945, then sold it to Mary Murray in 1954. Murray renamed it the Battletown Inn, and various individuals have owned it since. It was last sold in 2016 and closed.

These little guys are a lot of fun. My daughter Holly was given one by her sister for her 10th birthday. He lived for 5 years, which is pretty good for a hampster. Just great little pets, especially if a larger pet would not be feasible. Hope they find homes!✌😎

Amanda AJ isn’t this what you wanted before from the crazy people? Our animal shelter is SO much better. ❤️

Opening just in time for my visit to good ole Berryville in 5 years lol Guess I should feel honored lol

Will miss the bridge.Lived 1/2mile from it.

I grew up a mile or so from this bridge. Traveled over it each time we went to Winchester. Remember having to wait for another car to cross. I'm sad to see it go, but with time, all things have to change. I would loved to have had a chunk off the old bridge for my flower garden. We always called it "Sarah's Bridge" because there was a funny story attached to it and our Mom, Sarah.❤❤

Can't wait for it to be completed. You wouldn't think it would make that much of a difference getting into Winchester from Boyce but it does and it drives me crazy everytime I head into Winchester. I still say dang, I can't just shoot down the road. So glad they're running ahead of schedule.

How about replacing the one lane concrete bridge on valley mill at the creek. It’s falling apart.

Did Vdot include a small bike lane on the new bridge(s)?

Yay!!

Loved the country burger and a bag of burgers. Used to work there in high school. Lots of fun memories. And I too learned to make an awesome cone there.

Lived in berryville about 18 years ago and we loved going to tastee freeze. I also have fond memories of tastee freeze hot dogs in stephens city when i was a kid in the 70’s

The Old Days! When it was Ok to eat Fast Food In Berryville!🍔🍟😂👍

Must have closed around 2007-2008 because I was still going there when I was probably 8 years old.

I worked there in the 90s while I was in high school. My favorite place was the ice cream corner. To this day I can still make a pretty cone! -m

Memories of going here with my Mom getting our favorite , their pineapple sundae's.

I absolutely loved the Tastee Freeze!

The relocated Tastee Freez closed just weeks after we moved to Clarke... 😕

My Mom passed in 2007. I used to go get her foot long hot dogs w/ everything 😋she loved them!!! ❤

My favorite was the Boston shake

I lived in berryville for 19 yrs before I moved to Winchester we always went there when we did our laundry on Saturday as kids with our mother

Loved the food, my mom and I would stop after we went to the apple farm in the fall when the leaves started to change color ,cant remember the hwy or the apple farm name it was like going to west Virginia.

I worked at the Tastee Freez around 1961 when Mr. & Mrs. McGee operated it.

I remember it

Where i learned to make a mean ice cream cone!

Loved their burgers....lovvvved them. Too much probably.

It also reopened over where Boyds Nest is now. And a “Tastee Freeze Coming Soon” sign stood for years where McD’s is now. But it never came back.

maybe everyone had their seat belts on because they saw the police from a mile away and more than half read about the check on facebook because someone else had the GENIUS idea of warning everyone, or looked on ways and seen 10 cop cars on the gps..... if you sit in a police stop and search net and didnt fasten your belt while waiting to be interrogated for no reason than you need not be mad at anyone but yourself.

Thank you to all the officers involved! There are some who greatly appreciate your service to our wonderful community.

Folks who are berating the police department for this: What’s wrong with you???? State & local police all over our state & nation do this as a safety reminder on holiday weekends. This “waste” as you chose to call it, may save a life (possibly someone in your family). Think before you criticize!

Good Lord, people 🤬

Need to worry more about people texting while driving and talking on phone!

Congrats on making quota for the month. Y’all are really keeping the streets safe by harassing drivers. Don’t get me wrong I understand making sure people are being safe and wearing seatbelts, but clearly that’s not the only thing they planned on doing.

So nine officers getting paid to rack up three whole violations. Great use of resources.

Y’all are an awesome waste of taxpayer dollars.

And no matter what we post here....It will continue. Good Ol’ Boy justice at its finest 😂

So basically "Click It or Ticket" is essentially just an excuse to fish for other violations?

If it’s a click it or ticket they should just give warnings for other things. If it’s a traffic stop checking for everything then that’s different.

I am in full support of what they do. If you obey the laws there should be no problems. I work for VDOT and there a lot of people who should not have a license. I see violations all day long and am running out of cuss words!

402 vehicles checked and all were wearing their seatbelt. Sounds like they should make better use of their time. Just saying

By design the NHTSB Click It or Ticket campaign seems to be a positive initiative. The National Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization is May 20 - June 2, 2019. In 2017 alone, seat belts saved an estimated 14,955 lives and could have saved an additional 2,549 people if they had been wearing seat belts. Seat belts have been proven to be one of the best ways to save your life in a crash. Yet many still don’t buckle up. Worse still, not wearing a seat belt is a habit that will pass on to impressionable youth, who in turn will think it’s safe to not buckle up. The Click It or Ticket campaign focuses on safety education, strong laws, and law enforcement officers saving lives.

👎. It’s a cash grab and a search attempt, it has nothing to do with safety or community service. Intelligent people are not fooled.

Glad they all had on a seat belt!

Nice violation of individual rights. I thought y'all were supposed to uphold the Constitution?

Eh, who needs probable cause, right?

It’s unconstitutional and illegal

#knowyourrights

Unconstitutional.

I guess they have eliminated all the heroin and fentanyl ... better things to do boys.

Gross.

Some of the most fun afternoons of my life, so many memories

Some of the most fun afternoons of my life, so many memories

I remember that pool. My two siblings and myself learned to swim there in early 70s

Many memories of that pool

I had such fun times at that pool. Many great memories

Wow! Spent so much time there during the summers. Good ole days!

Went there a few times

Where I learned to swim...spent many days there..always had a pass..

I learned to swim there! CT did not have a pool. Mr. Funkhouser did not mind us swimming there but it was fed by Spring water and so cold .

The good old days!!!

There certainly were a lot of odd decisions made back in the 1960's/'70's/'80's around here concerning what to keep and what to pave over.

Those lazy days of summer were fun!

The garden in the Business 7 roundabout west of Berryville was pruned, mulched, weeded, and aerated by Town employees this morning. Record rain last year and lots of rain this year took a toll on some plants, including the knockout roses, which were removed today because most were dead or diseased. The Town is now developing a plan for the roundabout garden that will conform to VDOT standards and enhance the entrance to Berryville. #ClarkeCountyVirginia ... See MoreSee Less

Awesome, getting all spruced up for Memorial Day and our tax dollars at work!

Fancy! It feels good to finally get a new do. I’m just a small country town roundabout though, I’d settle for a good smattering of garden gnomes. 🤷🏻‍♂️

The Town's Public Works Crew does a great job. Down Town is always neat and manicured for Memorial Day weekend.

Do the Air Force thing and put down lava rock. If we have any convicts that need something to do we can have them paint them white. I'll have PTSD flashbacks every time I drive by, but they're low/no maintenance and look like..............................lava rock

Pampas Grass

Great job!

When I inquired about heavy trucks barreling down Triple J to/from rt50, I was told nothing could be done about it. How is 601 different? 🤷🏻‍♂️ 🤔

I realize trucks have to go down rt 340 but is it possible to stop them from using their airbrakes????? Please?? They seem to get louder every year.

Thought 601 was a given.

They don’t need to be crossing 606 either!!!

Today, most of the old Coiner’s building is empty. Three offices are occupied by lawyers, including the building’s owner. One space is Stardust Ballroom. Timeless Glam Boutique, which opened last year, has gone out of business.

Wonderful memories of going there in the early 1960's with my grandmother. I loved it when she paid and they made change!

Thank you. Loved that store

Loved this story when I was younger I walked to the store from bucks auction

My mom Barbara Keefer worked there during Christmas late 60's early 70s. Her main job was to wrap Christmas presents. If you bought gifts there, It was a service offered for free that the Coiners family started from the opening of the store. We kids had run of the place. He always aloud mom to bring us with her so she didn't have to get a babysitter. So kind.

When I worked for Michael Hobert in the late 1990s, the change pulley was still usable in (but not used by) the gift shop that occupied this part of the building.

So awesome

Bob Fetter

I love these old buildings and the history of Coiners. Maybe one of the Hobert descendants will get the retail bug again and re-open the store.

I wish a business would move in... I just noticed the Glam Boutique or whatever its name is gone... things just don’t stay

Many memories

Loved that store. Mr. Hobert used to sit upstairs with his pulley system to handle purchases. No register downstairs that I recall. Perfect location to keep an eye on patrons too.

Luvd this store, went there alot with my Grandma luvd the pulley..and those stairs when we went up to pay a bill...very friendly, also hardware store next door ..little ole Berryville has grown up n changed so much since I left in 1984.

What is this building, currently?

So cool and such a landmark! Monique Mosolf, this is the building we were talking about the other day.

A fox involved in a fight with a pet near Blue Ridge Street in Berryville last week was captured, euthanized, and tested positive for rabies. Lord Fairfax Health District Director Colin Greene said because the incident occurred in town, there is concern people or other animals may have come in contact with this fox. Rabid animals spread the disease via a bite, scratch, lick, or other exposure to saliva or nerve tissue. Any person or any domestic animal that was exposed to a fox in that area between April 29 and May 9 should immediately receive a medical evaluation, Dr. Greene said. Owners of pets that go outdoors should talk with their veterinarians about rabies boosters. Additionally:
• Never approach or touch wild animals, especially raccoons, foxes, skunks, or bats. These animals are the main carriers of rabies in the eastern U.S.
• Feral or unknown cats and dogs may also carry rabies. Report bites or scratches from these animals to your physician or the Health Department.
• Vaccinate all cats, dogs, and ferrets against rabies – even if they don’t go outdoors – and keep their shots up to date. Livestock owners should talk with their veterinarians.
• Do not feed wild animals or stray cats and dogs. Eliminate outdoor food sources near the home.
• Keep pets confined to your property and/or walk them on a leash.
• Notify the local Health Department and Animal Control Officer if your domestic animal is bitten or otherwise interacts with a wild animal.
• Direct questions to the Clarke County Health Department at 540-955-1033. #ClarkeCountyVirginia

OMG, Donna! So sorry for you and Hershey,Jr. Thank goodness it turned out ok!

I hope the fox wasn’t that person’s pet. The one that escaped and she has a license to keep.

The pet that is involved in this is mine, I let Hershey Jr out into our backyard on Blue Ridge St. I had went to the front yard to push the trashcans around to the backyard. As I am going up the driveway I see the fox and my dog tangled together, I am sure Hershey Jr was protecting his territory. The Fox had my dog by the leg and would not let go. He was snarling and my dog was crying, ran into the house and got a broom. I used the brush part hit them. Hoping that this would separate them. The fox ran off. By looking at him he looked healthy and red, didn't look mangy. Felt bad they had to kill it, but it was for the best if he had rabies. My dog had had it's rabie shot, going to the vet today for some extra booster shots. We think it had it's den over in the orchard at Berryville Graphics and when they mowed it scared it out into the neighbor hoods.

Oh my god when you go out after dark becarefull

Oh no what a shame !

Give my cat's rabies shot I don't give any other shots to them because they don't need them

Oh no!!!!!!

How do we know the pet didn’t start the fight? This fox could have been defending himself

Gosh, hope no one drowns in all these lakes we have around here. Do we need permits for puddles, like huge ones!

Sorry guys. This isn’t a “Clarke County” rule - it is part of the uniform building code. And it is there to protect the community. The fee covers the cost generated to inspect that the pool is properly installed and has the proper protections. You are dealing with water and electricity. Drownings and electrocutions happen every year. And frequently. And in almost all cases it is a combination of inattention and or a lack of safety devices. The permit is cheap - if you are spending thousands of dollars on a pool what a a few extra bucks to protect you (liability) and your neighbors.

What’s next? Permits for kids playgrounds😂

Wondering when you too will be permitting chicken coops! Sad...

Ahhh, more ways for them to take your money.

This is onerous, arbitrary, and capricious use of permit authority on property that is already well taxed. 👎 Anyone starting a petition?

“THANK YOU!” to everyone who donated Purina Cat Chow Complete to the Clarke County Animal Shelter! Last week, the shelter was down to only three bags. One Facebook post and seven days later, there is now enough food for the many cats and kittens that arrive this time of year. The shelter at 225 Ramsburg Lane in Berryville is open 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every day. Call 540-955-5104. Follow
