Interview with Ruth

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Ruth: EWCC - I was enrolled in college and that helped immensely. There were just not enough funding to keep it up.

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Ruth: At first cable was available at EWCC, then funding and furloughs so that was cut. None of the other facilities offered anything. At one point EWCC hired a rec director but that was short lived. He had gotten card and sports tournaments going.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Ruth: I personally did. No motivation for my self. Others had more determination than I diud.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Ruth: I was able to get outside. There was an oval at EWCC for us to walk around, I was a TV junkie. Avalon we had to be in when sun goes down. no entertainment there.

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Ruth: Almost every night of the week. I myself didn't attend as to many inmates attend and act one way at the service and another on the yard. I COMPLETELY disagreed with this aspect so I stuck with my program, AA.
