    Sheriff's Office saves $100K with inmates painting jail

    http://www.wect.com/Global/story.asp?S=14036347

    While it saves the Sheriff's Office money, Sheriff Ed McMahon says he didn't expect to see how much it would affect the inmates - for the better.

    Instead of sitting in their cells or watching TV, painting has proved to be enough exercise and engagement to raise the moral of the entire crew.



    I think I love this Sheriff! He rocks! I wish Sheriffs across the country would follow his lead. MOO

    Love the idea -- it would be a positive step to give inmates something to do.

    What made me chuckle though was the ''typo'' in the article - I am thinking that the reporter could use some coaching.

    "Inmates had to volunteer and no one with any prior disciple issues was considered. The group started earlier this month and estimates a three-month long completion time."
