Board Seeking

Charities For

Recycling Program
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Two years ago, the Recycling 4 Charities pro-
gram was launched in Madison County with Junior
Auxiliary as its first recipient. Last year, Needy
Families was the featured charity, raising over
$2,000 for their Christmas gift project.
Special receptacles have been placed in each of
the collection sites throughout the county, where
residents are urged to place their aluminum cans
while disposing of their trash. In cooperation with
the program, a representative of the charity simply
collects these cans periodically and delivers them to
the recycling center for payment.
As the program enters its third year, the Board
of County Commissioners is now seeking applica

Barfield pointed out that it is
very frustrating to understand
the true fact of the three values
that are reported and just how
critical it may be.
"'Market Value' will not con-
trol a longstanding homesteaded
property owner's tax bill. It is the
Assessed and taxable values' that
are what drive the individual tax-


payers scenarios on the TRIM no-
tice," said Barfield.
Those taxpayers who have
had homestead exemption for the
longest period of time are the
most frequently affected in the
confusion. A quick review of a
sampling of these cases indicate
that tax bills will generally in-
crease between $40.00 and $150.00
for 2009, if the proposed millage
rates are approved by the taxing

Communism In
Back in March 2009,
President Obama ap- .
pointed Van Jones as his
Special Advisor for
Green Jobs. .
Jones, a former ,
Black Nationalist and -?. .
self professed commu- '
nist, was arrested in 1993
as a participant during
the Rodney King riots
(charges were later rcc
dropped.) He is quoted
as saying that while in i T
jail, "Met all these young
radical people of color. I
mean really radical, com-
munists and anarchists.

SAnd it was like; this is what I need to be a part of."
And, "By August, I was a communist."
(Black Nationalist according to Dictionarycom
"A member of a group of militant Black people who
urge separatism from white people and the establish-
ment of self-governing Black communities.")
(Radical according to Dictionarycom "a person
who holds or follows strong convictions or extreme
principles; extremist." And "a person who advocates
fundamental political, economic, and social reforms
by direct and often uncompromising methods.")
(Communist according to "aper-
son who is regarded as supporting politically leftist
or subversive causes.")
(Communism according to Dictionarycom "a
theory or system of social organization based on the
holding of all property in common, actual ownership
being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the
state." And "a system of social organization in which
all economic and social activity is controlled by a to-
talitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpet-
uating political party. ")
Anarchists according to "a per-
72 son who advocates or believes in anarchy or anar-

lashington, D.C.P
chism." And "a person
Swho seeks to overturn by
violence all constituted
forms and institutions of
society and government,
w ith no purpose of estab-
lishing any other system
1 of order in the place of
that destroyed." And "a
person who promotes dis-
/. I order or excites revolt
against any established
Srule, law, or custom."
Emerald Greene Jones also helped
Publisher found a group called
STORM (Standing To-
gether to Organize a Rev-
olutionary Movement) and held study groups in
Marxist and Lenin studies
To paraphrase Glenn Beck, who said it best (re-
ferring to our President of the United States), How
can you put a self acclaimed communist as a czar
and say you're not part of that? How can you sur-
round yourself with radicals and say you have noth-
ing to do with that?
America was founded on the principles of free-
dom. Communism and Socialism are NOT true free-
dom. Why has the President of a FREE country
appointed a self-proclaimed communist as a person-
al advisor to him? Why is the President's health care
system so close in comparison to a socialist pro-
If we're not careful, America seems to be head-
ed in the wrong direction.
God help us all! (And yes, I pray to God/The Fa-
ther/The Son/and Holy Ghost... for all you ACLU
(And for all who have taken offense to this arti-
cle because you think I'm attacking Van Jones be-
cause of his skin color..... think again!!! The word
communist says it all!!!)
Until then....see you around the town!

Last week, I attend-
ed Allen Boyd's town-
hall meeting in
neighboring Perry. I
wasn't content to listen
to how the news media
described these gather-
ings, so I decided to wit-
ness one in person. The
venue was changed
from the Woman's Club
to the Forestry Park,
presumably to accom-
modate a larger crowd.
Congressman Boyd
has said on countless
occasions this month
that he has never before
hosted larger townhalls
than during this August
recess. I estimated that
there were between 400
and 500 citizens present
at this meeting in Perry.
Boyd spent about 10
minutes laying ground-
work for the meeting.
He noted that CNN had
come to record the
event. That might ex-
plain why this meeting
received so much na-
tional coverage. He
gave notice to the crowd
that we would show our
visitors "Southern
manners and hospitali-
ty" which I think for
the most part we did.
The congressman
talked about the reces-
sion and that there
were some recent signs
of recovery. He said
that the Blue Dog Coali-
tion (52 House Democ-
rats) had four tests for
any health care reform
plan: you must be able
to keep your current
plan; reform must slow
the growth of accelerat-
ing health care costs;
we must insure more
Americans; and the
plan must pay for itself
without borrowing
money. The crowd sig-
naled their approval of
the plan, particularly
the last point.
Then Boyd opened
the meeting up to ques-
tions. I was impressed
with his manner. He
was in amongst the
crowd and listened
carefully to every con-
cern. Most of the time
he answered a question
directly. He seemed
genuinely interested to
hear what his con-
stituents were think-
The crowd got a lit-
tle agitated at times, but
for the most part, we
were all respectful.

When a questioner
made an important
point, the crowd would
roar its approval.
Every person who
came forward to ask a
question, with one ex-
ception, was generally
opposed to the presi-
dent's health care re-
form plan in some way
This was a conserv-
ative crowd that voiced
its disapproval of any-
thing liberal. The ex-
ception was a woman
from Tallahassee who
said she favored the
president's plan for a
government run health
plan. It was obvious
from the crowd's nega-
tive reaction that she
did not represent the
views of the citizens of
Here are some of
the things that speakers
said that drew positive
reactions from the
crowd. They didn't
want health insurance
to be extended to illegal
aliens. They did not
want public funds to be
spent for abortion (or
rather, to use the liberal
code words -- "women's
reproductive health ser-
vices"). They seriously
questioned the federal
government's ability to
run anything as large
as health care success-
fully after witnessing
debacles in the VA and
Medicare. One speaker
noted that both the En-
ergy and Education De-
partments were created
during the Carter Ad-
ministration and mat-
ters had gotten steadily
worse since that time.
One citizen said
that "you don't need to
tear down the house to
remodel the bathroom,"
indicating that we
could improve health
care and lower costs
without such a drastic
reform. That logic
made a lot of sense to
the crowd.
Congressman Boyd
held up the thousand
page HR 3200 bill
(passed by the House

Energy and Commerce
Committee) and said
that he "wouldn't vote
for this bill in its pre-
sent form." The people
sitting close to me said,
"That doesn't tell me
anything. What do you
favor? If one provision
changes, would you
vote for it then?" At
one point, Boyd warned
a questioner that,
"There is a lot of misin-
formation on the inter-
net." The people in the
crowd asked, "What
about all the misinfor-
mation coming from
Most of the ques-
tions were about health
care, but one official
from Tri-County Elec-
tric took Boyd to task
about his vote for the
"Cap and Tax" energy
bill. Boyd reminded
everyone that the bill
had only passed the
House and wasn't law
yet and used the excuse
that a national electric
co-op lobby group had
advised the Agriculture
Committee that they
could support the bill.
The crowd didn't care
for that answer.
One questioner said
that an important way
to cut health care costs
was tort reform to pre-
vent lawsuit abuse.
Boyd said that he fa-
vored tort reform, but
he didn't say that the
trial lawyers were in
the back pocket of the
Democrat Party and as
long as his party was in
charge, tort reform was
The message at the
Perry Townhall meet-
ing was clear: we don't
want big government to
run our lives; fix what
you already have rather
than add a lot of big
ticket entitlements that
will cause our taxes to
rise. I wouldn't be sur-
prised if Congressman
Boyd heard this same
message repeatedly, re-
spectfully, but firmly in
communities through-
out North Florida.

According to the Madison Police Department:
On August 20, 2009, Officer Eric Gilbert was pa-
trolling the area of Valentine Avenue and observed
the defendant, Jeremiah Jamel Gillyard at a resi-
dence. Officer Gilbert was previously notified by Sgt.
Chris Cooks that Gillyard had outstanding warrants
for his arrest. Officer Gilbert made contact with and
arrested Gillyard. While conducting a search inci-
dent to arrest, Officer Gilbert discovered marijuana
on Gillyard's person. Gillyard was arrested for Pos-
session of Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell.

On August 22, 2009, Officer David Myers re-
sponded to Fred's in reference to a theft. Upon ar-
rival, he met with the store manager. The manager
reported she observed the Defendant, Tara McNealy
conceal items and attempt to leave the store without
paying for the items. Officer Myers interviewed Mc-
Nealy who admitted to taking the items. McNealy
was charged with Petit Theft.

On August 22, 2009, Officers Joseph Agner and
Joseph Smith responded to Winn Dixie in reference
to a person panhandling and intoxicated. Upon ar-
rival, Agner met with the store management who
gave a description of a subject and stated the subject
was walking around the store, asking other patrons
for money and appeared to be intoxicated. The sub-
ject left the store before officers arrived. Officer
Smith located the subject matching the description
given a short distance from Winn Dixie. The subject
was identified as John Dale Murray Officer Smith
recovered items from the
defendant which where
F taken from Winn Dixie.
Murray was arrested for
Petit Theft and Disorder-
ly Intoxication.

Question: I have found out that if I don't do
something about my gum disease I may need to get
dentures in a few years. I don't want to loose my teeth
and I don't want dentures. Can I just take a pill to make
my gum disease go away?

Answer: I know what you mean. A pill that could
stop the infection of gum disease would be great!
Especially if you could get a 30 day supply for $10. I am
sorry to say this does not exist. Many researchers have
dedicated their careers to finding a pill for the infection
of gum disease. Naturally, antibiotics are at the top of
the list. Researchers discovered the germs mutated and
became resistant to the antibiotics very quickly.
Additionally, there were many unwanted complications in
patients taking chronic daily antibiotics. All in all, pills
have failed.

We know that a hygienist cleaning out the bacteria and
tartar on teeth is beneficial for preventing gum disease.
Gum disease can be controlled and its progression
delayed. With routine maintenance the outcome of gum
disease can be greatly improved. In my opinion, treat
the gum disease and hang on to your teeth as long as
you can. Teeth with gum disease are better than any set
of dentures will ever be.

My suggestion, see your dentist and hygienist. Don't
wait for a mouthwash or pill to cure gum disease.

tablished for some reason during the peak of the
market years (2005-2008) are the people who will see
some tax relief due to specific market drops in the
county The same homeowners also paid the highest
taxes during the boom years because their market
and assessed values were merely the same.
The millage rates set by the taxing authorities
play a key role in the equation needed to lower a
homeowner's tax bill. At the local level, a taxpayer
may have recourse with the taxing authorities set-
ting millage rates as part of their annual budget
process. That is why TRIM notices are mailed, that
Information provided on notice advises the public of
the dates and times of those hearings.
"The major reason longstanding homestead
property owners are not seeing a reduction in taxes,
even while market conditions are declining assum-
ing their market value has dropped, is the recapture
provisions of 'Save Our Homes,'" stated Barfield.
"The provisions of Section 193.155, ES., mandate an
annual increase of three percent (3 %) over the prior
year, or the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Florida,
whichever is lower, be applied to assessed value.
"In 2009, the CPI applies, since it is lower--it is
virtually zero (0.1%) this year. As long as the law
stands as written and interpreted, this is what hap-
pens. The Property Appraisers' association pressed
legislation early on of the 2009 session. Bills were
filed, but the shortage of funding this year dominat-
ed the session, so the proposed legislation did not
make it out of the committee. Local delegation sup-
ported bills in 2009 that would have insured that tax-
able values would not go up when market value
dropped. I urge YOU the taxpayers to join us on this
issue in 2010. No voice is greater than that of the tax-
payer," said Barfield.
If the current declining market condition con-
tinues, until such time as market value drops to the
assessed value on homestead properties, no reduc-
tion in assessed value can occur. Once the two val-
ues (market and assessed) are equal, then assessed

The Scam Works Something Like This:
Your wireless phone rings once or twice and
then disconnects the call. When the number ap-
pears in your wireless phone log as a missed call,
it appears to be a typical domestic telephone num-
ber starting with a "649" area code; or you get an
e-mail or voicemail (on your residential wired
telephone) telling you to call a phone number with
an "809", "284", "876," or some other three-digit in-
ternational area code.
When you return the call, you assume you are
making a domestic long distance call as "649,"
"809," "284," "876," and other area codes involved
in this scam, appear to be typical three-digit U.S.
area codes.
When you dial the three-digit area code plus
the number, however, you are connected to a
phone number outside the United States, often in
Canada or the Caribbean, and are charged expen-
sive international call rates, and may be charged
for pay-per-call services as well. (In this case,
"649" goes to the Turks and Caicos, "809" goes to
the Dominican Republic, "284" goes to the British
Virgin Islands, and "876" goes to Jamaica.)
You don't find out about the higher interna-
tional call rates until you receive your phone bill.
What You Can Do to Minimize the Risk of This
Happening to You:
Check any unfamiliar area codes before re-
turning calls.
Be aware that there are many 3-digit area
codes (mostly in the Caribbean) that connect
callers to international telephone numbers.
If you do not otherwise make international
calls, ask your local or wireless phone company to
block outgoing international calls on your line.
Filing a Complaint with the FCC
If you are billed for a call you made as a result
of this scam, first try to resolve the matter with
your telephone company. If you are unable to re-
solve it directly, you can file a complaint with the
FCC. There is no charge for filing a complaint. You
can file your complaint using an FCC on-line com-
plaint form found at esup- You can also file
your complaint with the FCC's Consumer Center
by e-mailing; calling 1-888-CALL-
FCC (1-888-225-5322) voice or 1-888-TELL-FCC (1-
888-835-5322) TTY; faxing 1-866-418-0232; or writing
Federal Communications Commission Con-
sumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau Con-
sumer Inquiries and Complaints Division 445
12th Street, SW Washington, DC 20554.
The best way to provide all the information
the FCC needs to process your complaint is to
complete fully the on-line complaint form. When
you open the on-line complaint form, you will be
asked a series of questions that will take you to
the particular section of the form you need to
complete. If you do not use the on-line complaint
form, your complaint, at a minimum, should indi-
your name, address, e-mail address, and phone
number where you can be reached;
the telephone and account numbers that are
the subject of your complaint;
the name and phone numbers of any compa-
nies involved with your complaint;
the amount of any disputed charges, whether
you paid them, whether you received a refund or
adjustment to your bill, the amount of any adjust-
ment or refund you have received, an explanation
if the disputed charges are related to services in
addition to residential or business telephone ser-
vices; and
the details of your complaint and any addi-
tional relevant information.
Filing a Complaint with the Federal Trade
Commission (FTC)
If you feel that you are a victim of an interna-
tional phone scam, you can file a complaint with
the FTC online at You can
also submit a complaint by calling the FTC toll-
free at 1-877-382-4357 (voice) or 1-866-653-4261

Madison County Carrier 7A


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing Inc.
As anybody who
has an email account
will attest, there has
been a massive surge
in emails dealing with
the proposed health
care plan (H.R. 3200)
circulating lately. The
vast majority is
against the plan, with
allegations of "death
panels" among other
emotionally and politi-
cally charged state-
ments. In an effort to
keep the debate on the
"reality" of the plan -
which isn't to imply
there aren't numerous
aspects of the propos-
al that will continue to
be subject tof debate -
the president recently
discussed the issue in
his weekly radio ad-
According to Asso-
ciated Press Writer
Darlene Superville,
"President Barack
Obama is challenging
critics of his push to
overhaul the health
care system to stop
making 'phony claims'
about proposals now
the subject of intense
coast-to-coast debate."
Coincidentally, this re-
porter has a friend
from church that he
admires as an excep-
tional businessman
and conservative who
recently made similar
discoveries regarding
the claims made by the
"This is an issue of
vital concern to every
American, and I'm
glad that so many are
engaged. But it also
should be an honest
debate, not one domi-
nated by willful mis-
representations and

outright distortions,
spread by the very
folks who would bene-
fit the most by keeping
things exactly as they
are," the president
said. "So today, I want
to spend a few minutes
debunking some of the
more outrageous
myths circulating on
the Internet, on cable
TV and repeated at
some town halls across
this country.'
Superville pointed
out that, "Obama said
the overhaul would
not cover illegal immi-
grants nor use taxpay-
er dollars to pay for
abortions, and he does
not intend a govern-
ment takeover of
health care as crit-
ics have claimed at
contentious town hall-
style meetings with
members of Congress.'
"He also took a
swipe at 'death pan-
els,' an idea former
Alaska Gov. Sarah
Palin introduced on
her Facebook page,"
the reporter added.
"As every credible
person who has looked
into it has said, there
are no so-called death
panels an offensive
notion to me and to the
American people,"
Obama said. "These
are phony claims
meant to divide us."
Last week, over
three-dozen stop signs
in Madison County
were vandalized. The
crime entailed paint-
ing the word "OBAMA"
underneath the word
"STOP," and it is un-
likely the president's
address will satisfy
critics locally or na-
tionally. As Superville
goes on to point out,

"Obama angered his
liberal base this past
week after seeming to
suggest he would be
OK with a plan that
didn't have a govern-
ment-run health insur-
ance option.'
"This is one idea
among many to pro-
vide more competition
and choice, especially
in the many places
around the country
where just one insurer
thoroughly dominates
the marketplace," Oba-
ma said. "Let me re-
peat: It would be just
an option; those who
prefer their private in-
surer would be under
no obligation to shift
to a public plan."
The AP article con-
cluded with a state-
ment from Republican
"Republicans, in
their weekly address,
accused Obama of be-
ing the one misrepre-
senting his proposal.
'As opposition to the
Democrats' govern-
ment-run health plan
is mounting, the presi-
dent has said he'd like
to stamp out some of
the disinformation
floating around out
there,' said Rep. Tom
Price, R-Ga. 'The prob-
lem is the president,
himself, plays fast and
loose with the facts.'"
Price notes, "the
whole idea should be
scrapped and lawmak-
ers should start anew
with a plan that en-
sures sure patients -
not Washington or in-
surance providers -
are the top priority.'
"We all know that
when the government
is setting the rules and
is backed by tax dol-
lars, it will destroy,
not compete with, the
private sector,' said
Price, a doctor. 'The
reality is, whether or
not you get to keep
your plan, or your doc-
tor, is very much in
question under the
president's proposal."

1 A Madison Enterprise-Recorder

Dannite H.


By Alfa Hunt
Special to the Madison Enterprise-Recorder
Dannite Hill Mays served as a representative
to the Florida House and would later serve two
terms as a United States Congressman.
Mays was born near Madison, close to the
Hickstown area, on April 28, 1852. For several
years, he attended the Madison County schools
before attending the public schools of Savannah,
Ga. after his family relocated. After completing
his secondary education, Mays furthered his edu-
cation at Washington and Lee University in Lex-
ington, Va. After receiving his degree, Mays
moved to Monticello, where he became engrossed
in his agricultural pursuits.
Mays' political career began in 1888 when he
served as a delegate to the Democratic State Con-
vention. Later, his political pursuits grew when
he became a member of the State House of Repre-
sentatives in 1891, then was reelected in 1895 and
1897. In the later months of 1897, Mays eventually
served as Speaker of the House.
In the 1891 legislature, Jefferson County was
represented by WC. Thomas in the senate and
Mays and John E. Morris in the House. Mays con-
tinued to serve in the Florida House of Represen-
tatives in 1895 and 1897.
During an angry election which lasted longer
than a month, Mays received a large amount of
support that encouraged him to replace Senator
Wilkinson Call on several of the election ballots.
The battle ended with the governor certifying the
election of R.H.M. Davidson and Call challenging
the certificate to the United Sates Senate. The
senators quickly decided in favor of Call whom
they had been known for the last 12 years.
While Mays was Speaker of the House in 1897,
another battle between Call and William Dudley
Chipley, Call's greatest personal and political en-
emy, ensued. This time, the electoral battle ended
with Call's defeat and Chipley's death shortly af-
terward under mysterious circumstances.
Both William B. Lamar and Mays continued
as leaders of the Democratic Party. Mays ran for
governor in 1900, and both men served in Con-
gress later years.
At the last Democratic nominating conven-
tion at Jacksonville in 1900, Mays was a leading
gubernatorial candidate. In the famous 1897 Call-
Chipley senatorial election battle, Mays had used
his influence as Speaker of the House against
Senator Call; however he was opposed for the
nomination by a growing liberal wing of the De-
mocratic Party. Supported by Napoleon Bona-
parte Broward of Duval County, William S.
Jennings defeated Mays for the nomination.
In the first state wide primary election in
1904, Mays ran for governor against Broward,

Robert W Davis and C.M. Brown. Finishing third
in the election, he gave his support to Davis who
ended up losing to Broward in the runoff.
In 1908, Mays ran for Congress to fill the seat
that was about to be vacated by his Jefferson
County neighbor William B. Lamar. With his suc-
cess in serving as a Congressman, he then served
two Congressional terms before being defeated
for reelection in 1912.
Mays' life not only revolved around his politi-
cal career, but also his personal interest and busi-
ness endeavors. By the 1890s, some of the local
businessmen died or moved away, but many of
those who had been in business during the post-
Civil War years remained. Mays had a degree in
law and was admitted to the bar shortly after the
completion of his education. In the 1890s, he and
another local lawyer, Benjamin W Partridge,
were doing business together under the firm
Mays and Partridge. In 1901, some of the practic-
ing attorney's were Mays, Samuel Pasco, T.L.
Clarke, S.D. Clarke, Thomas M Puleston, William
B. Lamar, Daniel A. Finlayson, B.J. Hamrick, and
C.W Hamrick. Included among them were in
United States senator, two Congressmen, and sev-
eral state legislators and judges. The practice of
law was largely concerned with civil cases. Petty
crimes were numerous, but only a few larger cas-
es came before the courts of the local areas.
Several large farms continued to operate with
large numbers of tenants. They took liens on
growing crops for the rent and advanced provi-
sions on credit either from general supply stores
on their land or through the local merchants.
Some of these were John E. Morris, John B.
Mays, H.B. Hines, the John Finlayson estate, and
Mays. A large commissary was operated in
Ashville just over the Madison/Jefferson County
border by Mays and John Finlayson III.
There were several mule dealers in the coun-
ty in addition to the general merchants who han-
dled the necessary work animal. Mays had a mule
business in Monticello from the mid-1890s until
the early 1920s.
As the land was gradually bought up and
closed to access of the general public, several Jef-
ferson County residents formed their own We-
launee Hunting and Fishing Club and purchased
from the estate of Charles T. Carroll about 200
acres of land on Welaunee Pond. Members of the
club were Mays, Franklin Floyd, J.R. Cooksey,
S.C. Walker, C.J. Reams, S.A. Ward, Charles Sim-
mons, L.W Sledge and others.
Mays' personal interest lied with the numer-
ous clubs of which he was part. The Jefferson Ri-
fle Company was replaced in popularity by the
Monticello Gun Club which featured target com-
petitions between individuals, and even teams

Dannite H. Mays

from other towns. The newspaper was amused in
1886 when the club failed to turn in the scores of
a contest. It turned out that R.C. Parkhill, who
had never before shot at a moving target, made
the best score of the day to the chagrin of some of
the experts. In May 1866, Mays won the club's sil-
ver badge for target shooting the third straight
year. Even though much of his time was spent in
Jefferson County, he did have some dealings in
his native county of Madison. He was a member
of the Concord Baptist Church since it was his fa-
ther, R.J. Mays who had assisted in the organiza-
tion of the church years before.
After his defeat for renomination to Congress
in 1912, Mays returned to Monticello where he re-
sumed his agricultural and business pursuits. He
died at his home in Monticello on May 9, 1930 and
was interred at Roseland Cemetery in Jefferson

District Prepares For Great Year

By Michael Curtis

The Madison Coun-
ty School District
opened its doors on Au-
gust 24, as students and
staff returned for a new
year of reading and
math, football and
friends, along with all
the other subjects,
sports and activities
that make up the school
In preparation for
that return, on Thurs-
day, August 20, district
and school staff gath-
ered at the Central
School for a morning of
information and moti-
vation. Superintendent
Lou Miller opened the
occasion with a warm
welcome, which was fol-
lowed by several speak-
ers, each with a special
message that reminded
everyone about the im-
portance of teaching
and learning, as well as
giving and receiving.
"Remember that
students are watching

Last year's Teacher
of the Year, Christi

urged everyone to live
life fully, to enjoy new
experiences, and to in-

played a role in develop-

In addition to dis-

guest speakers, repre-

banks and insurance
companies were on

few door prizes. Willy
Gamalero, chair of
United Way in Madison
County, added to this
sprit of giving with a
brief musical presenta-
tion that involved nu-
merous school staff and
volunteers, noting the
importance of support-
ing local charities.
Miller shared a few
statistics with the
group, including an
overview of the dis-
trict's overall report
card. Last year's mea-
sures in reading, math,
writing and science
were reviewed. Addi-
tionally, she noted the
state objective to have 85
percent of all students
on grade level in all sub-
jects by 2014. And while
this leaves some ground
to cover, recent im-

The Madison Coun-
ty School District has al-
most 2,700 students and
is the largest employer
in the county. Along
with parents, it is also
the front line for prepar-
ing future workers and
business owners, as they
move through school
with the intention of
college or productive vo-
cations. The gathering

underscored this goal,
recognizing the fact that
small rural counties, es-
pecially those that have
experienced genera-
tional poverty, depend
on their school systems
more than ever to help
fill the gap. Based on the
enthusiasm and unity
displayed at the meet-
ing, it's safe to say that
district personnel are
determined to make that
goal a reality.
