Clark: Too Much Prison Hanky-Panky?

Not to frighten any of you, but I predict the entire region will soon be clobbered by a tsunami-sized crime wave. And all because of what’s been going on at Airway Heights Correctional Center, the horndog hoosegow of Eastern Washington. Mark my words. Criminals will be getting themselves purposely arrested so they can get in on some of that Airway action, and who can blame them? For the second time this spring, one of the prison’s female staff members has been accused of having carnal relations with an inmate. So much for prison as a deterrent/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: Huckleberries can't figure out why prison staffers would get entangled with prisonsers. Can you?

AM: Inmates Cut Firewood For Poor

The program puts minimum security prisoners to work cleaning up downed trees and turning it into firewood that is distributed through SNAP. Kevin Graman SR story here. (SR photo: Jesse Tinsley)
