You are not a pain, I don't know how that happened, trying to figure it out, but IPT has had all those copies posted here forever and am glad you realized it and brought it to our attention. 

Thank You!

Mah, do you have current Stateville Speaks?  My son called tonight and he is telling me that there is an article about phone service that didn't make sense to me since we only can use Securus and he said it's another www.site....

Not yet, but will be adding it to the site just as soon as I get the pdf file.

Has Statesville Speaks published anything in 2013? If they are still publishing can I send a check to their address to be mailed to my son in Lawrence?

Nothing to date in 2013, but I think they are working on one.  As soon as we get anything, it will be put up on IPT.  You can send your check to Bill Ryan, information in this topic in the event the newest issues comes out, it will be mailed to him.

I've just added another new issue in the post above, don't know how we missed this one, but it was the Spring Final Issue of SS.

There will be yet another issue out within a few weeks and when we receive it, IPT will post it!

Does that mean they aren't publishing it anymore? I was going to sign my l/o up to receive it, but didn't want to send a check if there won't be any more issues coming.
He's home!

Really was amazed at the work put into Stateville Speaks. There are many problems with our prisons and jails and most importantly justice system. It seems that addressing these issues is not allowing for any changes. So we need to make a petition to decrease recidivism and fund re-habitation programs. Lets stop the prison cycle and help those whom we can (HB3668, inmates with mental health disorders, etc.) Mr. Bill Ryan is a great advocate at starting this process, now lets help to make a positive change.
Meadow! :wc38:

   When will the next one come out?  It is August 21 2016, and its been a long time since the last issue of Statesville Speaks.  What is going on? A friend subscribed for me, and I have submitted an essay, but have heard nothing back.

Thank you
