FEATURED STORY

Unbridled Spirit

By Jim Montalto and the Kentucky Dept. of Corrections

Three cheers for the Bluegrass State

Kentucky is famous for its annual derby, bluegrass music and fine bourbon. It has the highest number of deer and turkey in the U.S., and is home to the nation's most productive coalfield. Now it can add to its prestige, the amount of charity work accomplished by employees of the state’s corrections department.

From relays and races to icy cold plunges and house painting, the KYDOC employees worked tirelessly this past year to make sure those in need were helped and cared for. Following are some inspirational stories about the great work they have accomplished throughout the year. Read this week's full story.

READER FEEDBACK

Regarding Jamming on the inside
This is something that should have federal funding and should be done in every prison in America. These criminals should not have this type of access, and should not be able to make these phone calls.
