For the Girls' Advisory Board Mural Project, artist James Macko helped create a design with ideas from selected girls.
   Girls painted last Friday despite rain. When done the mural will read "Girls of Jefferson County Working Beyond the Expectation."
   The art project is sponsored by the Girls' Advisory Board, Jefferson County Cultural Coalition and the American Association of University Women. Local businesses that helped with donations and supplies included The Outpost, Madras Paint and Glass, Bullet Rentals, Madras Body and Glass, and Miller Lumber.
