Inspections: Newk’s, BWW, Walmart 7/19/12 …

Restaurant inspections are back up and going after the Fourth of July holiday break. These should catch us up.

The state Department of Health regularly inspects restaurants and food facilities.

The facilities are graded from A to C. “A” is the best. “C” is the equivalent of failing, but the inspection isn’t bad enough to merit the closure of the restaurant.

The following Lee County facilities were inspected between July 4 and today.

The facilities are listed as they are in the MSDH system. Yes, we know there are typos, but if we correct them, you won’t be able to look up the business in the state’s web system.

Stanford moved to Florida prison

From Reuters:

HOUSTON (Reuters) – Allen Stanford, convicted of leading a $7 billion Ponzi scheme, is serving his 110-year sentence in a high-security federal prison in central Florida, according to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

Stanford, 62, was moved to the Coleman II penitentiary on July 10 from the federal detention center in downtown Houston, a prison spokesman said.

The Coleman II facility, located 50 miles northwest of Orlando, serves brunch on the weekend, has Bocce ball courts, a music center and a game room, according to the facility’s orientation handbook.
