INMATE SERVICES :: Because of strict covid-19 precautions at the detention center, it takes longer for a new inmate to be moved into a traditional housing unit. So Inmate Services staff provide newcomers with complimentary bags of snacks, basic hygiene products, activity and puzzle pages, and pen and paper. Efforts like these help keep inmates safe, healthy and engaged.

Sheriff Dana Lawhorne has authorized deputies to wear the custom-made badges throughout October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This tradition began in 2013 when deputies ordered and purchased the badges themselves after a fellow deputy lost her battle against the disease. Beginning in 2020, deputies also had the option of purchasing golf-style uniform shirts with embroidered pink badges. Some deputies wearing pink badges are breast cancer survivors who share their experiences to emphasize the importance of early detection and to support others battling the disease.

To hell with this smarmy judge who let a man free so he could kill the woman who he stalked. Shameful.
Sean, did you forget, coloring is for seniors, too.
My puppy is missing. His name is Cam. He was with me in the car last night, Saturday April 11 when I took the trash out. I went to 7-eleven on Edsall and Van Dorn after. There was a man asking for money outside and two other men came up. One went inside and the other stayed outside. When I came out, Cam was no longer in the car. I thought I locked my car but I must not have. This was about 10:30pm. Please help me find him. He’s a ShihTzu. He’s about 9 lbs and 1 year old. PLEASE SHARE. Thanks for your help.

The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 left 343 New York firefighters dead. Retired FDNY Lieutenant James J. O’Donnell survived that horrific day but attended over 150 memorial services for those that passed. Now, he shares the lives of 10 heroes who perished in the attacks, as told by their parents in “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith.” “The crashing of two planes into the Twin Towers not only dismantled the buildings but hundreds of families as well. Mothers and fathers were left in the rubble of these attacks, searching for husbands, brothers and sons. Some of them never received answers nor recovered the bodies,” O’Donnell said. “The parents’ spiritual and emotional journeys can serve as an example of faith rising over despair.” “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith” serves as a memorial to the lives and careers of 10 first responders who perished on 9/11. O’Donnell presents a unique and personal look at how the parents of these heroes were consoled by the FDNY Counseling Services Unit and the role that they played in helping them manage their grief in the aftermath of a national tragedy. In their own words, these faithful families share their sons' bravery and sacrifice so that it will never be forgotten. These parents not only recount the lives of their children but their own road to healing. O’Donnell takes a special look at the role faith played in the lives of those that perished and their families. “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith is meant to help readers understand the stress, hardship and sometimes devastation that parents and families of first responders face,” O’Donnell said. “I also hope that readers realize the efforts and sacrifices of the FDNY and their families. Not only on that day but in the ensuing months and years.” Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Westbow Press.
