About Ethan Allen

It's going to be a difficult time for 290+ employees of Ethan Allen and Southern Oaks. Those facilities will be closing to consolidate juvie-prison near Irma.

...Ethan Allen staff members interviewed Wednesday said they thought Ethan Allen was the likely candidate to stay open because 70% of the juveniles incarcerated at Ethan Allen and Lincoln Hills are from southeastern Wisconsin.

Actually, the BEST reason to close Ethan Allen is that Irma is 4 hours by car.

This happened in Vegas last year. They had a choice to close a boys prison- one in the Las Vegas Valley or one on top of a mountain, 45 minutes out of Las Vegas- nobus service and in the winter, barely accessible.
They chose the mountain top.
