MADISON COUNTY, Ala. -- Madison City School Superintendent Robby Parker knows what he has to do. He has to convince voters in the city that they have to raise their property taxes by 12 mills to provide revenue the school system has to have.

He's working these days to explain the crucial needs of the school system, and the fact that those needs can't be met unless Madison citizens vote to raise their own property taxes.
