Cornell Gets Mens Facility in Hudson

It was sold as a women's facility but will be built as a men's facility that we don't need. We should not be funding yet another prison when what we need are release facilities so that people can get back on their feet.

James E. Hyman, Cornell's chairman, president and chief executive officer, said, "The progress we made on executing our business plan resulted in strong operating performance for our second quarter, which enabled us to raise and then exceed our updated guidance for the period. We continued the expansions at the Great Plains Correctional Facility (Great Plains) and the additional expansion at D. Ray James Prison. We remain confident we can deliver our outlook for 2008, we can succeed in this strong demand environment, and we can accelerate our growth into 2009."
The Company also announced that it finalized arrangements for the construction of a 1,250-bed male facility in Hudson, Colorado, which will be built and owned by a third party and be located on land the Company is expected to sell to the third party. The Company has signed a new implementation agreement with the Colorado Department of Corrections relating to the development of the site and expects to begin receiving inmates in the fourth quarter of 2009.

djw. We have state representatives, such as the governor. The only thing they complain about is the number of beds necessary and the cost per day of keeping inmates. They know the public will complain about building a costly new prison, but they send to "committee" any ideas about the real solutions of separating mental and drug cases, securing those offenders, and then treating them. mpc

mpc. Prisons for profit violate the constitution. If our judges do not start following the constitution there will be a second revolution. The public is fed up. djw
