An indictment charging a cor- rections officer and two other men with smuggling heroin and mari- juana was ordered resealed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Dennis Hubel in a rare oral order from the bench after a defense attorney argued the timing of the release could be un- constitutional and pose a security risk. When told by The Associated Press that the indictment had al- ready been made public, Hubel said the information it contained was available. "To the extent that the media has got it, they've got it," Hubel said. But his Order prevented U.S. Attorney Karin Immergut and the FBI special agent in charge for Or- egon, Bob Jordan, from discussing it at a news conference following an arraignment hearing. Immergut and Jordan did, how- Linfield College theatre students will explore the timeless quest for beauty and its cost during the pro- duction of"The Waiting Room," a dark comedy by Lisa Loomer. Performances will be held May 3-5 and 10-12 at 8 p.m. and Sun- day, May 6, at 2 p.m. in the Marshall Theatre in Ford Hall at Linfield. A portion of the box of- rice proceeds from opening night will benefit Henderson House. This play is for mature audi- ences and includes strong language. Under the direction of Janet Gupton, associate professor of the- atre arts, the award-winning play portrays three women from differ- ent centuries who meet in a present day doctor's waiting room. .Forgiveness From Heaven is an 18th century Chinese woman whose bound feet are causing her to lose her toes. Victoria is a 19th century tightly corseted English woman suffering from what is com- monly known as "hysteria." Wanda, a modem girl from New served by phone at 503-472-2227. Jersey, is having problems with her ever, discuss two companion indict- ments charging 10 people with a scheme to smuggle tobacco into the prison -- including two prison em- ployees. Immergut noted that tobacco was declared contraband and banned in federal prisons in April 2006, partly for health and security reasons. The indictment that was re- sealed charged James Stephen Rolen, Alfredo Carranza Jr. and Eliverio Martinez-Franco with con- spiracy to distribute heroin and marijuana to inmates at the Federal Correctional Institution in Sheridan which holds about 1.900 inmates and has about 350 employees. Rolen and Carranza also face bribery charges. Rolen was identified as a cor- rections officer by prison officials, who could not give any other de- mils. The indictment covered events in February and said Rolen entered the prison on Feb. 25 with heroin and marijuana, a digital scale, bal- loons and other drug-packaging paraphernalia. The other two indictments charged 10 people -- including two women -- on various counts involv- silicone breasts and battling breast cancer. Husbands, doctors, Freud, the di'ug industry and the FDA all come under exanlination. The play rakes a look at the aes- thetics of beauty and the price women are prepared to pay as they manipulate their bodies to please the culture. It also explores the roles women play, Gupton said. For ex- ample, Victoria yearns/br knowl- edge but during the Victorian era, women were not encouraged to be educated. Post-show panel discussions ing tobacco smuggling. Timothy Gilmartin of Amity, a former education specialist at the prison, was charged with con- spiracy to provide contraband -- to- bacco -- along with seven others. Brian Williams, a maintenance foreman at the prison, was charged in the second indictment with pro- viding tobacco to an inmate, Steven Reynolds, who was charged with possession. Jordan said the FBI began its investigation in the summer of 2006 based on a tip to the Yamhill County sheriff's office. He said the smuggling scheme was like the plot "of a Hollywood movie," including a "dead drop" to exchange money at the Sheridan library using a book titled "The Billion|are." In a talk before the Sheridan Rotary Club a few weeks ago Bob Scyoc, an assistant warden, was asked how drugs can be smuggled into the prison. In response, he said corrections officers watch closely when fam- ily members visit inmates. He said some visitors have tried to pass drugs to inmates during a kiss -- after stuffing the drugs in their mouths while using the bathroom. will be held following both Thurs- day performances, May 3 and 10. The discussions will center on the tie between poor body image and abusive relationships, and concepts of beauty.
