Gotta admit it, things have been tough for TJJD lately -- what with making headlines in the Austin American Statesman newspaper THREE days in a row, and now, the kids escaping from Turman House... what's next?

BLOG BIO


WebMaster I worked at GSS to help incarcerated youth for over 6 years, and saw a lot of changes... but not many of them GOOD. My mission on this website is to help promote positive changes so the time and effort by current JCO's at the Giddings State School -- and taxpayer money -- are not wasted. We ALL need to do what we can, and this is MY way of doing my part... the kids, and the State of Texas deserve no less!
