The Nam in My Inbox: Seriously, No One Wants This Prison

So, that pesky new prison that the commissioners are all about but pretty much no one else is? Yeah, they have to move it.

The Bureau of Aviation can't sign off on the prison just yet because of the location and wants it moved 250 to 260 feet, off of what is considered a "transitional surface."

Basically, the land sucks, and word is the general area sucks so bad that a dance hall collapsed there in the '40s, resulting in the deaths of some teenagers. Now, the best I could come up with was this article from 1925, but without signing up for an account on the site, it doesn't tell me a whole hell of a lot--but it's an interesting piece of county history regardless.

Thanks to Marybeth again for the info!
