KENTUCKY - Norma Canipe, an inmate at a federal prison in Lexington, smiled as she watched a young girl flit around a shelter for domestic violence victims wearing a handmade hat and scarf that Canipe had given her.

"It was worth like a million dollars to see it," she said. "It made her so happy, it just melted my heart."
