Albemarle County’s professional firefighters have launched another “Fill the Boot” campaign. One of the supporters is Kirsten Miles, whose daughter is a muscular dystrophy patient, and a senior at Monticello High. Miles says clinics for people with the disease are a tremendous help. The firefighters say they will not solicit donations on public roads during a fund-raising drive that lasts until August 31st. They will be set up through August 31st at privately-owned shopping centers such as Rio Hill, the Hollymead Town Center, and a shopping plaza near Mill Creek Drive.
