An aggressive campaign to keep a home for the mentally challenged out of a Rockbridge County residential area appears to have paid off.

Now, the Executive director of the county's community service board says he's ready to recommend a new site.
The Mental Health Clinic Advisory Board bought land near Glasgow in September.
The site is in a subdivision off of route 6-0-8.
Residents of the subdivision want to know why the land was bought for more than three times the accessed value.

Executive director Michael Gilmore says that sale price was not unusual because the county's assessed values are often lower than the price people will pay for homes or lots in Rockbridge.
The county currently has a group home in Lexington, which also drew opposition.
Gilmore says it now fits into the community.
The advisory board will decide on Gilmore's recommendation next Wednesday.

((Newell Falkinburg has been searching high and low for votes. He figures he's knocked on seven thousand doors since the campaign started. ((I'M RUNNING FOR THE HOUSE OF DELEGATES AND WE'RE TRYING TO BAND ON EVERY VOTER'S DOOR IN THE DISTRICT.))
While Falkinburg may not be a household name, the Roanoke doctor is hopeful a well- organized, well- financed campaign will pay off November 7th.
Like the other republicans challenging democratic incumbents, Falkinburg says the voters are demanding a change of leadership. ((NEWELL FALKINBURG/R- HOUSE OF DELGATES CANDIDATE: WE DO HAVE PROBLEMS AND I WOULD LIKE THEM TO CONSIDER ME FOR A TWO YEAR TRIAL OF EMPLOYMENT. IF I DON'T DO THEIR LIKING THEY CAN BOOT ME OUT AT THE END OF A COUPLE OF YEARS AND BRING BACK THE OLD INCUMBENT, BUT I THINK THEY'D LIKE WHAT I WOULD DO.)) ((DEL.

On issues including education and economic development, Chip Woodrum believes he has built a record of accomplishment in the House.
And while Falkinburg may provide the strongest challenge of Woodrum's political career, the delegate says he's confident the voters will return him to Richmond. ((I'D APPRECIATE YOUR VOTE ON TUESDAY. YOU KNOW YOU HAVE IT.))
