Shut the facility down it is under staffed and cannot find help, the prison in Marienville takes al the employment away from them. For any one to travel any distance to work there, they simply cannot afford to travel there with the price of gas and low wages. The best thing is shut it down and move to a large city.

I agree the facility is uder staffed, and the kids run the facility. It would not be like this if the staff respected the kids, the way the staff wans to be respected. Shut it sown and move it.
