6/16/2014 Kurt told me that certain staff members here were attempting to shut down his business class that he’s teaching.

6/13/2014 After months and months of worrying about making it into the horticulture class, I can finally set my mind at ease. I made it in! The teacher finally walked me down to his office to look me up on his computer. Only twenty inmates make the list each year, my number is 17 in… Read More

6/11/2014 Shortly after my arrest, I continued using substances at the beginning of my stay in the county jail. Often people would have drugs on them in jail, either because the arresting officers weren’t thorough enough in their initial pat down or search after arrest, or the person just brought in a prepared package of… Read More
