Great news about Bert and hope you have a great visit.

Still no call from yard 3 for me..but I think it is cause of today's mandatory yard. At least, this is what I'm telling myself to get thru the day.

It is when they have to go to yard and their areas are searched..not sure of all the specifics but they have it every Friday. I'm not sure if it is all of yard 3 that does it today or just certain buildings.
I think the phones were off or not working.

I hope we get our calls tomorrow.

Mandatory yard is for "pod toss". The COs search through the pods for contraband and it happens rain or shine. The days and times are usually rotated so nobody really knows when they are coming. With the smaller lockers now, there is less contraband because it has to be hidden somewhere and the COs know all the hiding places so it's getting even more routine.

Finally a call, seems they were on lockdown since Wed evening. He said someone went to the dentist and I guess they had some tools or something missing, so lockdown, almost 2 days until finished looking. He did not think they found anything. Whats really dumb, when my husband had his tooth worked on, they left him in the room, alone. So its no wonder if they do this all the time, anything could be taken. Anyway hope every got their calls. I just get a little nuts when he does not call. Always think the worse. This never gets easy does it!

Was this just a yard 3 lockdown or was it a prison lockdown?
I hope I get my call in the morning!

You are so right. Its now 6:17 am and no call yet.! This will really tick me off. Let you know if he calls. Probably another day with no staff. They all wanted to stay home for "Fathers Day"!!!

No call here yet...
I hope all staff that was selfish enough to not think of their job responsibility and take off from work just to stay home for the holiday gets written up!

I will try to make it to the chat tonight, as long as my daughter gets to sleep on time.

good morning ladies,
I just got my telephone call. So it appears that at least 2 yard is okay (of course no one else here seems to be on yard 2). It was suppose to be a good call ( i guess i was on one of those pms things & missing him so much & feeling sorry for us both, I didnt even tell him happy fathers day, oh my GOODNESS!!! He never complains though. He is suppose to call me back tonight (GOD's willing), I'll have to tell him then & say I'm sorry for this morning. GEESH, when will all this be over.
Okay gotta go hope to see you all in the chat room tonight...

oh yeah, T was telling me that they have now made 210 triple bunks and given them the smaller lockers. He also said that it wasnt every bunk but only the ones on the ends (whatever that means). It did indicate that it is a lot more people now, logner shower lines etc.

Hey guys, Bert is on 510 and got off lockdown at 830 this morning. He said that it was because lack of staff. (I joked with him and said if he got off lockdown at 6 would he call that early and he said yes).

On another note, I have a problem maybe you guys can help me with. I have sent Bert 2 seperate money orders about 1 month apart for $100 each. On the envelopes that he got with the letter, it shows that they received the $. He has no restitutin left to pay. This week is 3rd draw and he was going to go to canteen, but was told he only has $24 on his books. This is the 2nd time since he has been in that he has not received the money on his books. How can I find out for sure that he got the money on his books. I doubt that his medical costs from when he was sick cost $200. I know I could call the accounting dept tomorrow, but how else can I do it, can his counselor do anything?

A few years ago they had some 'not so nice people working in the mail room MANY money orders disappeared' I really hope that isn't the case again. I know now with Morgan saying hers are missing, well that is 4 people now that their money orders aren't going through .... hmmmm time for some investigation work I think.

Definately call the accounts department, follow what you know, then email Ken Hurdle as well let him know. THEN contact the money order company ASAP tell them the money order has disappeared and make them trace it THEN you will see the money show up normally .... this is what everyone did a few years ago and it worked so hopefully it will again.

Ken will also email the warden and put them on notice this is happening again.

I will also ask my "friends" that work there to check on a few things as well
