The Madison Central School Board agenda for its Monday, December 8 meeting includes a couple of custodial personnel actions. Long-time grounds and maintenance chief Dennis McCracken has submitted his resignation, effective this coming New Year's Day.

Of course, when I worked with Dennis during Mundt, he never seemed the type to shy away from hard work. But for those of you applying for Dennis's job, remember: if high school principal Sharon Knowlton asks you whether you think cleaning up after a debate tournament would be an "overwhelming" task that's just "too big" for Madison High School, the answer she wants to hear is yes.
