What jailing doesn’t accomplish, educational computer tablets might be the way forward….

The Lincoln County Jail recently purchased and began testing tablet devices to be used by the adults in custody (AIC). The tablets sold by TurnKey Corrections in partnership with EDOVO learning provide the AIC’s an opportunity to learn and expand their skills while in custody. The tablets contain many educational modules, examples include but are not limited to, GED studies, vocational training, stress, and anger management, as well as cognitive and behavioral therapy. Through the completion of these modules the AIC’s are rewarded with points which can then be used to watch a movie, tv show or play a video game.

Points cannot be purchased by the AIC’s, they may only be earned by engagement in the different modules. These tablets are provided to the AIC’s at no cost, the usage fee is paid for out of the jail commissary revenue fund ensuring that all AIC’s have access to this tool to better themselves while not only in custody but once they are released back into our community.

Stop Pandemic Vaccine Price Gouging Before It Starts – See below

Corona Virus Update

Make Medications Affordable by Preventing Pandemic Price-gouging Act

Senator Tina Smith (D-Minn.)and Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.)The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a public health and economic crisis that has ravaged communities across the United States. Millions of individuals have been infected with the virus, and the economic fallout from the pandemic will likely be felt for years to come. Safe, effective, and accessible medications—including a future vaccine—are essential to overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic.After investing billions of dollars into the development and manufacturing of several COVID-19 treatments and vaccine candidates, the American people deserve access to these medications without financial barriers.

Senators Smith and Merkley’s Make Medications Affordable by Preventing Pandemic Price-gouging (MMAPPP) Act ensures that any taxpayer-funded vaccine or treatment for COVID-19 proven to be safe and effective will be accessible, affordable, and available to all individuals.

Specifically, the MMAPPP Act would prohibit monopolies and exclusive licensing of taxpayer-funded drugs that are used to diagnose, mitigate, prevent, or treat COVID-19 to ensure these drugs are universally and fairly accessible. Require the federal government to mandate reasonably affordable prices for any new, taxpayer-funded drugs used to diagnose, mitigate, prevent, or treat COVID-19.  Safeguard transparency by requiring manufacturers to publicly report a detailed breakdown of expenditures related to any drug used to diagnose, mitigate, prevent, or treat COVID-19, including specifying what percentage of expenditures were sourced from taxpayers; and prevent price gouging of drugs used to treat future diseases that would cause a public health emergency by waiving exclusive licenses and providing companies reasonable compensation.

The MMAPPP Act will prevent pharmaceutical companies from profiting off the global pandemic while providing Americans with access to treatment they can afford.
