If Dcc were to close it would be devastating to towns near and far! Times are hard enough with gas prices, insurance and prices of everything else goin up. Finding a new job could take days,weeks,months or even years in this economy .......therefore it would be devastating! Please keep the Dwight Correctional Center open.

between DCC closing and RRD which is probably gonna reduce even more than they have been (printing is a slowly dying profession) Dwight is in a very hurting condition not to mention other nearby towns

sorry dwight people.

your days of living off the state are over.

we spend too much money on prisions and the greedy unions.

close the prisions.

cut the staffs.

and as for the jail birds dont let them out early just pack them into cells until they are shoulder to shoulder!

give them bread and water and a bucket!!!!!!!!
if they stay in their cage 24-7 you need fewer guards!!!!!

the state is broke and the prison is gonna close

deal with it!!!!!!
