  • Northern Arizona jail teaches inmates to avoid debt

    By Larry Hendricks
    Flagstaff, Arizona (AP)

    Page resident Mellowdi Yazzie, 30, was caught earlier this year driving with a suspended license following a DUI conviction.

    At the time, she had a warrant out for her arrest because she had failed to comply with court-ordered payment of fines. She was sentenced to the Coconino County Jail. She’s the first to admit that her trouble with the law primarily had to do with her inability to manage her finances. She got into debt and didn’t pay her fines.

    The Bus Stop
    by superdj126
    In a crowded city at a busy bus stop, a beautiful young woman wearing a tight leather skirt was waiting for a bus. As the bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step of the bus.
