Your Tax Dollars at Work

The Colorado Department of Corrections, in partnership with Professional Cabinet Shop in Wedlock, Colorado has announced a new Work-Release Program for inmates who have been recognized as model prisoners. Under this program, inmates will report for training each morning at 8:00 and will spend the day learning the cabinet-making trade in preparation for their re-entry into society. 

Inmates who successfully complete the program will have the skills needed to earn a good income and be less likely to return to a life of crime. While the program has the strong support of the State, some critics have referred to it as the “Pros and Cons of Cabinet-Making.”

Business Closings 

Joe’s Tire Shop is closing due to the owner’s re-tire-ment . The owner, Joe Slick, said he plans a big “Blow-out Sale” and hopes to move most of his inventory at the sale, saving the cost of a large auction to liquidate the inventory.
