I realize it's impolite to stand up in the 21st century and declare something that was established in Colonial Maryland - say, the election of sheriffs in every county and Baltimore City - to be archaic, inefficient and unnecessary. But with all due respect to the old snuff-sniffers in powdered wigs who mandated it, I can no longer remain seated. Voting for sheriffs is as silly as silk pants. So is voting for registers of wills. Ditto for orphans' court judges, clerks of the court, and even state's attorneys.

Four years ago, Anne Arundel County voters selected Republican Robert G. Pepersack Jr. to replace a sheriff who had nothing to show for 28 years in office but a disorganized mess. It was the right choice then. But Mr. Pepersack would be the wrong choice now.Give him credit for organizing the sheriff's office. But Mr. Pepersack's fantasy of being a modern-day Matt Dillion has hurt his performance. From day one, he has been unable to comprehend that he's responsible for courthouse security, prisoner transport and service of legal papers -- and nothing else.

Editor: It was with a heavy heart and a terrible sense of sorrow that I, like many of you, watched the tragic events and unfathomable loss of life in Sandy Hook on Dec. 14, 2012, and questioned how such acts of unprovoked violence can be averted. As the father of two daughters who attend Harford County Public Schools and partake in all of the wonderful things Harford County has to offer, I often worry about their safety. As a career law enforcement officer, I, like other current and former members of the law enforcement community, cannot help but to seek data on this event and others in an attempt to arrive at an answer.

He's blasted county government in voluminous letters to local newspapers, making County Executive Robert R. Neall so mad that he sent the sheriff a note saying he was on the executive's "egg-sucking list."

According to his challengers in the Democratic primary, John W. Anderson is woefully unqualified to continue as Baltimore's sheriff. He's mismanaged his agency, they say, allowed thousands of warrants to go unserved and kept an intentionally low profile because he has nothing to show for his 25 years in office. Anderson dismisses the charges as mere politics. "There's no mismanagement here," he says. "We're running a good, sound agency. " Wherever the truth lies, the race for Baltimore's sheriff is shaping up to be one of the most competitive in years.

A candidate for Baltimore City sheriff is accusing an opponent and another man of taking his campaign signs from the windows of local businesses. In a complaint filed in Baltimore District Court, candidate Donoven Brooks said members of his campaign noticed that signs were missing from businesses along Washington Boulevard April 14. Brooks says store owners told him that opponent Richard Parker had removed the materials and handed out his own literature. Brooks also says he has security camera footage showing Rob LaPin, a Parker supporter and candidate for the House of Delegates, taking a campaign sign from a restaurant, tearing it apart and throwing it away.
