What happened to this commitment? Same as the others, file 13

In light of the recent allegations of negative, incomplete, and unfounded press coverage from one of our local newspapers, I felt it would be a good thing to do as Paul Harvey said, to tell “the rest of the story.” I have seen posts around dinner time with pictures and menus of what you will be enjoying for your family dinners – so I thought it would be interesting to some of you to have an idea of what we are serving at the Morgan County jail. There are two reasons for this – first, family and friends of our inmates can be assured that their loved ones are being taking care of, treated well, and fed properly. Second - to be transparent and forthcoming with an issue that has garnered so much attention from the local press over the years.
The photo of the weekly menu is attached. This menu is authorized and approved by our nutritionist and has been consistent for the past six years. Tonight is hamburgers with baked beans and corn, fruit or dessert, milk or fruit beverage. Breakfast will be as follows: 2 pancakes with 2 oz. portion of syrup, 8 oz. oatmeal, 2 eggs and milk. Lunch on Saturday is two chicken salad sandwiches, chicken noodle soup, and dessert or fruit and milk or fruit beverage and Saturday is my favorite. We have fried chicken livers, 4 oz. potato salad, 4 oz. green beans, bread and dessert, milk or other beverage.
It is important that you know that I would never and have never denied anyone a nutritional or adequate meal. It is mainly because I try to be a Christian and a good human being, but also, because I understand the responsibility given to me to care for those under my custody.
I appreciate all the kind words and support, the prayers, and all the messages that I have received. I will be addressing different topics and continuing to update you as I can with more information each week. I also plan on some Facebook live posts with different topics of interest. Thanks again! Until next time have a safe and blessed weekend.


  1. I never seen that kind of food when I was in jail. If it says 2 eggs that is a lie. They meant to say 2 bites of egg like substance.

  2. Regardless of how frequently I read it, it never gets old. You certainly hit the nail on the head on this one. This is something individuals need to think about. Your blog is really mind blowing and the design is really first class. Really, your blog is mind boggling. It’s important that they know how the structure of online blogs workout.
