[Dec 07] The staff of the Jail voted this month for our 2007 employee of the year. The winner was Deputy Dora Bartley. She has been the cook here for over 10 years. Dora was very happy to receive the award. She is pictured above with the award and Jailer Doyle Fox.
   
[NOV 07] The GED is an exam developed in the United States that is available for all adults who want an equivalent of a high school diploma. It tests general academic skills and core content that are covered in four years of high school. Each year hundreds of thousands of people earn their GED diplomas, which they use to get jobs, earn promotions, or qualify for higher education or training. This is one of our inmate programs offered here. We had our first GED recipient this month. Seen above is Eric White with his diploma and instructor Sandy Moore.

[MAR 07] Boys learn a great deal by watching how adults conduct themselves. Scout leaders and members of the local community can be positive role models for the members of a troop. In many cases adults who are willing to listen to the boys can encourage them, and can also make a profound difference in their lives. As seen above Jailer Doyle Fox talks to a local Boy Scout Troop as they tour the jail.
   
[Feb 07] With time and patience the inmates in our minimum security cell are turning thread into crosses. It takes a few hours to twist the threads into the finished design. They can be any color or size. They have been making these for a few weeks now and have been handing them out to visitors, family members, staff, and the District Judge to wear and enjoy. Rex Francis and William Adams are seen above weaving and twisting them into shape. You can see the finished necklace in the lower right corner.

[Feb 07] Since taking office on Jan 1st, Jailer Doyle Fox and Judge Executive Wilbur Graves and the Fiscal Court have initiated repairs on the jail. This includes repairs on the heating and cooling systems, cleaning, preventive maintenance of equipment, and painting of the jail. All of the jail will soon be painted, inside and out. All of the inmates are helping in this effort as they clean walls, ceilings, and floors inside and out of their cells to be painted.
