    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!:rocker: 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.

    snipped from your link and BBM

    "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."
