1985 Jail "One of the Worst"

85 0123 01
January 23, 1985

Dr. James Metts of National Institute of Corrections visited at the request of the Sheriff Wayne Hooks, and he declared the jail one of the worst he had ever seen in many years. That led to extensive improvements so the jail was able to serve for another 25 years before the new facility was finished recently in 2009.

Others that week: Sportsmen Deer Contest, Soil Conservation Awards, Masons Banquet, Perry Blount retired.
