"I have always wanted to help people," said Sheila Kurtz, the instructor of the six-week program, which offers 18 sessions for participants.

Remember kids, crime doesn't pay. Except in the state of Maryland, where justice officials have agreed to pay 900 former juvenile delinquents $4 million to compensate for the fact they were routinely beaten up at Western Maryland "boot camps. " The boot camps were supposed to reform the kids by instilling them with discipline, work ethics and hard physical challenges. Hard physical poundings were not supposed to be part of the formula, but apparently guards in the Allegany County camps had their own ideas about reform, and some of the kids ended up with broken teeth and bones.
