MONTICELLO - A fundraiser to replace outdated fitness equipment and renovate the Monticello school building has been gaining traction since it was established in May but still has steps to take toward its final goal. Alma Mentz, president of the Monticello Sports Boosters and a teacher with the district, noticed the need for a new space and approached the school board with an idea to rethink the available fitness options. "It just wasn't what the kids needed," Mentz said.
