It rained heavily last night an the trail was flooded. Walked on the basketball court instead. Completed 6 miles walk in 1 hour, 20 minutes and 13 seconds, at 8:00 AM. Average walking times were: 13 minutes and 6 seconds per mile (milla) or 2 minutes and 11 seconds per lap (vuelta). The morning walk started out cool and the basketball court was dry. the sky was overcast and filled with angry clouds. the sun barely illuminated the cloud and did not make its appearance. It was cool and refreshing walk after the rain. Stretched and split stretched at the basketball court. Finished stretching at 8:40 AM. Cleaned the computer room. Counselor Reyes told me that there is no new inmates joining us today at the camp. I read Doris’s email: Michael Santos urged me to file the two point sentence reduction even though it would not help me. The only thing they can do is to deny my request. Went to sewing room to repair pants, put away cleaned uniforms and exchanged uniforms. Exchanged shirt and pants for Marquez. I email Michael Santos and Doris regarding the two point reduction filing: 1) Is the judge bound by the two point reduction or can they go lower than the two point and go out of their boundary. 2) If the judges can exceed their boundary of two point, are there any prior cases to reflect this? 3) If the judge grant more time than the the two point sentencing range reduction, can the government appeal the judge’s decision. I think the government has appealed Judge’s decision before. I will wait for Michael opinion before I decide which course of action to take. Lunch was served at 10:20 AM. Luncheon menu: chicken sandwich, pasta, beans, an apple and hot water. Talked at 10:30 AM: Doris and Patches are well. Doris said Michael replied but I still had some questions that I need answered before I can decide if I should file. Also I will be filing on my own behalf rather than using a lawyer. I had to cut the conversation short. Took a shower at 11:00 AM. Changed to BOP uniform. GED / ESL tutoring classes 12-2:30. Census count at 3:30 PM. Dinner was served after the count. Dinner menu: Shredded beef, Green beans, bread, mixed vegetables and warm water. ACE Classes – Art History 1 5-6 PM (Hosting) and Western History 6-6:30 PM. We had the last class for Art History 1 and had the final examination. Census count at 7:00 PM. Census count at 8:00 PM. Finished my laundry at 8:30 PM. Cleaned up at 9:00 PM. Final Census count at 9:30 PM. Went to bed at 10:00 PM.
