Thanks Zelda...do you have anyother info on why? I didn't get a call last night, but I don't get one on Tues or Thurs anyway, so I didn't know. If you have any additional info, please post it.

Yes, they are--staff assault, per phone call.

If you are planning visits this weekend, call....if you know Big Sandy well enough, you know that they will prob be LD for a while for this one...

Thanks Nurse..no I can't visit very often, so no plans this week-end, but on Thanksgiving, I pray they all behave themselves. I think the whole system is starting to break down!! Did you call and get the info, or did your inmate call you?

I called and got the info to verify it after I saw the update here: http://www.cpl33.info/id29.html

I plan on a Thanksgiving visit as well, and I relaly pray that everyone behaves up there. I think I know the problem...those who act up dont give a care because their visits/phone calls are not interrrupted....me thinks they have little to no love from outside the gates.

Good Morning Nurse, I PM'd you with Haven of Rest info. Yeah, your right about how important it is to have someone to love. The first time I went to vist and knew there were over 1400 men in there and only appox 25 of them were getting visits, it was both extreamly sad and shocking. This expierence has opened my eyes to a whole population of souls society would simply like to forget about...only I won't let them because I have choisen to be thier voice.

Thanks for all the info on Big Sandy! I did manage to find it. It was off Rt 3 just south of 645, like you said. I had a great visit with my friend Al. Thankfully they were not locked down. I can't believe how empty the visiting room was. Not enough people, but it is in the middle of nowhere, with no transportation. There were people visiting from Iowa, Massachussets, all over the country. I wish I could see my friend every week, but it is just too far and gas is too expensive to make it feasible! Anyway, I hope it won't be over another year before I get to see him again...

WW,

I'm glad you got to visit. The only time I ever saw a lot of visitors were on the holidays.....most of them hardly ever get visits....just like tolong said

Your quite welcome Nurse,

I still haven't gotten a call, so I guess the men are still on LD. I hate when they do this, cause we spread our calls out so they'll last till the end of the month, and you watch, the LD will end on 11/1, so we loose all thoose minutes. I swear that prison has a list of things to do just to add more stress on everyone!

Big Sandy gets locked down more than any other BOP facility that I know...it's crazy.

But, as I said...I believe a lot of it is...most of the guys in there don't have much to hold on to or care about.

Sad sad sad

Hey Nurse...They're off LD. I got a call last night, but they had to lock in at 7:00. It made my day! I pray all is well with your inmate.

Basically not hard to find. Prison is south of Inez on RT 3 on the Martin/Johnson County Line........ Ask anyone where the airport (or prison) is at and they will tell you..... Airport is at the same turnoff on RT 3. First road on the left going up the hill is the prison, Airport is a mile later.......

The only decent hotel is at the next intersection north of the prison (5 miles or so)...... Come out of the prison onto RT 3 (the main road) turn right and head north. I forget what it is, but its a national brand and usually not too full.....

Anything to do (food, etc) is south of the prison at Pikeville.

More questions, PM me... I don't get here too often....
