Faulkner County Jail Follies

Now that the daft duo have been captured up in Indiana, one must ask just why oh why state prisoners are lounging around the car wash area at the old jail....to the point that they can slip away???

Now Maj. Brown says in the Log Cabin today that the public is "unclear" on jail jurisdiction in the car wash area.

Hmmmm...why does it even matter if I am unclear on it...I'm not the one being paid millions and charging millions to house these guys.

The jail does not allow inmates being held for trial (not convicted) such freedoms...but yet one that is in for 40 years can apparently roam around freely...and have more than enough time and ability to get some young jailer to fall for his lies.

And it's unclear to whom???

Lunch at Carl Stuart Middle School.....

Wow...life in middle school apparently isn't tough enough for the teenagers in Conway. A letter came out from the school announcing that any students not taking athletics/PE will have to gulp down their food and use half their lunch period for PE exercises.

Kids that already have PE will be able to enjoy their 30 minutes of lunch with the usual standing in line, eating hurriedly, bathroom visits and onto the next class.

However, kids that don't have PE will get to do all that in 15 minutes.

Is gobbling down food as fast as you can really an ability that should be honed in middle school?

Roundabout on Prince Street

Oh goodness, turned toward the high school off Donaghey today and was surprised to see flagmen directing traffic into the roundabout.

Ugh.

This one is different from the one over by Hendrix. Once you enter the roundabout to continue west down Prince, you must choose either the right or left lane INSIDE the roundabout.

Accident. Waiting. To. Happen.
