By BRENDAN KIRBY Staff Writer Statistics show that the three prisons south of Hagerstown are among the safest for corrections officers, but a local union leader warned that despite the numbers, the prisons are a "ticking time bomb. " The Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services recorded 116 assaults at the three institutions in fiscal year 1996 - a rate of 87 for every 1,000 officers. That compares with a rate of 114.4 statewide. Leonard A Sipes Jr., a spokesman for the department, said assaults can be anything from brushing up against a staff member to stabbing a prison guard.

The state plans to fight reinstatement of a prison guard who was fired after nude photos of her appeared in a magazine and on the Internet, a spokesman for the state prison agency said Friday. The Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services filed a petition for judicial review in Washington County Circuit Court Friday. On Thursday, the agency asked an administrative law judge to stay his order that it rehire Marcie Betts, 22, of Hagerstown. The appeal will seek to overturn Administrative Law Judge D. Harrison Pratt's Nov. 12 ruling that Betts' First Amendment right to make and publish photographs of herself outweighed the impact those images might have on the state's ability to safely and efficiently run its prisons.

“Such is the human race. Often it does seem such a pity that Noah and his party did not miss the boat.” Mark Twain's observation above depicts his dim view of the human race. Finding something noble within the human spirit can sometimes be a chore. However, I want to share a book with you that has a hero that we all can be most proud. The book is called “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption” by Laura Hillenbrand. It is a riveting book about the life of one Louis Zamperini.

We in West Virginia pride ourselves on being neighborly. That's why my friend Carol and I decided to take a cake to Martha Stewart, a recent arrival to our state. Martha is serving a five-month sentence at the federal prison camp in Alderson for lying about a stock deal. I don't condone Martha's actions, but at least she is doing time while her male counterparts in financial skulduggery are still free. Charles Town is 231 miles from Alderson. Carol and I left early on a frigid Saturday because visitors are allowed at Alderson on the weekend.
