The heat is making everyone Crazy!

Yesterday, a secretary to the Warden at work was murdered by her boyfriend, Apparently he has been stalking her for a few weeks, and she had a restraining order on him. He was a correctional officer for 20 years and was fired about 5 years ago. He busted into her home about 7 in the morning and shot about 30 rounds into the house and her, then killed himself. The stinking coward!! She was a 40 year old mother of 2 little girls. What a crying shame.
Also this week a good friend at work got bared from coming on the prison property for inappropriate behavior with an inmate, It has been going on for along time, nothing real concrete just to much interest in his health and care, I mean on a daily basis. He also clerks for her AAA class that she teaches for the inmates. She is 60 and a very good nurse, Just makes me sick that she could not see that she was being compromised. How do you go home and explain that to your husband. She hasn't been fired yet but investigation is on. We are always so short staffed, we can't afford to loose another nurse.
Well maybe it will cool off and people will get back to normal, what ever that is. dc

I am so sorry to hear about both ladies...
I really hope your friend is able to clear herself, that would be a horrible thing to be accused of. But on the other hand, we lost a really good nurse for the same reason, and much to everyones shock, she was "doing it". Lost her career, her husband and everything over a smooth talker who had nothing but "time" on his hands.
Sounds like you guys could use a cooling rain around there...
PS right now it looks like we will be in your neighborhood Aug 18-22, will keep you posted as things firm up!

The heat is being atrocious to everyone! and I will be thinking of your friend and hoping she can clear it all up. Sounds like you've had an eventful week and not in a good way.

I have such mixed feelings about inmates. On the one hand, I want to help them, whatever that means...I really have no idea. On the other hand, this is not the first incident I've heard of with an inmate taking advantage of a woman's desire to nurture/help. Bleh!
