I’m hearing good feedback about the new warden at the Low. The Low required inmates to get passes to go to the library, chapel, etc. These were a hassle because if you couldn’t get a pass you were not allowed to go to that area. For example, if you don’t get a library pass early in the morning then you may not be able to go all day. The new warden did away with the passes.
Also, the Low inmates are now able to wear athletic clothes to the dining room in the evening.
I hear that the new warden is trying to do away with the 10-minute hourly moves. These were the biggest hassle you can imagine and what I hated most about the Low. You have 10 minutes once an hour to move from one part of the compound to the other. It often happened to me that I would need to make a quick trip and return but get stuck for the hour.
Our new warden is supposed to be starting on Monday. I’m sure he will make changes. I just don’t know what those changes will be.
