Lincoln County Commissioners paid their annual visit to the county jail last week, accompanied by Sgt. Tom Graham and Sheriff Dennis Dotson. The 90-minute tour was nothing new for Bill Hall and Terry Thompson, but it gave new commissioner Doug Hunt (above, far right, talking to Graham) his first look at the facility. The visit of the entire facility included a half-hour spent in the jailís medium security section (above) and a chance for Thompson (right) to have a conversation with an inmate he knew from his fishing days. The tour served primarily as an update on several new renovations now under way in the jail, including a technology upgrade that allows jail personnel to televise self-help and informational programs to medium security inmates.
