    The leaves are beginning to fall. The temperature is dropping. Sadly, for most of us who prefer the other three seasons, that means winter is on the way.

    I am ready to retire. In January 1993, Julie Warren (Truax) knocked on my door. Besides a calligraphy job for The Attic, she asked me if I would consider coordinating the Madison Chautauqua.

    To the editor: Please consider funding a county manager (administrator) position in the upcoming Jefferson County budget. I lived in Hamilton County, Ohio for 57 years prior to moving to Jefferson County.

    To the editor: Amazing story on Aug. 29. On the first page of Sports under “Sports Briefs” was an article about the University of Illinois firing a coach. Now, ordinarily I do not read much on the sports page. This time I did.

    A couple of months ago, the Congressional Budget Office issued a sobering report on the U.S. economy’s long-term prospects. Not to put too fine a point on it, we’re headed for the fiscal rocks.

    Congratulations to the Madison Consolidated Schools and a local farm family for creating a program to supplement the school district’s lunch program with homegrown vegetables.

    To the editor: The Indiana State Legislature wants a study to determine why education majors are dwindling in our universities. The understanding that they are searching for is well documented in the laws, regulations, and contracts they themselves fought for the last dozen years.

    This is a thank you for all the people who helped so much in the weeks before the Jefferson County 4-H Fair began.

    To the editor: 

    I want to send out a huge thank you to all of the volunteers who helped with the Summer Meals for Kids program this summer. This program, run by Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana in cooperation with the local Clearinghouse and the Southwestern and Madison School Districts, served 3,543 free meals to children ages 1- 18 this summer. The program was offered because more than 50 percent of the children in Jefferson County depend on free or reduced lunches to meet their nutritional needs during the school year. When summer comes, they lose access to school meals and this puts a greater financial burden on families that are already struggling. So, to help those families, every weekday this summer, free lunches were taken out into the Hanover and Madison communities on minibuses provided by the school districts and handed out to children by volunteers.

    The “Christmas in August Poker Run” was a huge success this year. We were able to donate $7,149.15

    We would like to say “thanks” to all those involved with the event. Without businesses donating, people selling and buying raffle tickets, T-Shirts, 50/50 tickets and riders donating their time, there is no way we could have raised over $7,000!
