The JC Fine Structure

by Robert Adams

Minor offenses, such as leaving clothes left on the cabin floor, often resulted in a $1.00 fine.  The most severe penalties in my day were ones where the guilty party was fined $50 and given four licks.  Those cases were almost always a Head Cook who had been through a disastrous week, forfeiting all of his bonuses in addition to the fine.

JC Automatic Fines

  1. At least one letter home each week ($5.00)
  2. Profanity ($1.00; $2.00 + one lick for 2nd offense)
  3. FOP ($5.00)
  4. FO ($1.00)
  5. Sneakers Free
  6. Haircut ($25.00)
  7. Breakage (replacement cost)
  8. Deerwoode Damage (replacement cost)
  9. Promptness ($1.00; $1.00 per minute for second offense)
  10.  Same Mistake Twice (double fine)
  11.  Killing Snake ($25.00)
  12.  Killing King Snake ($50.00)
  13.  Breaking J.C. Rule # 26 ($5.00)
