"High Noon" it's not, but the saga of Sheriff Robert Pepersack, Anne Arundel's feisty, hot-headed lawman, has provided some of the best entertainment the county has seen in years.He's overspent his budget, stalked out of county council hearings, found himself on the wrong end of a subpoena and been accused publicly by the council chairman of "not being man enough" to face him. 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."

American Telephone & Telegraph Co. has won a three-year contract to provide long-distance services for state offices in Maryland, the governor's office said yesterday.The contract is expected to save taxpayers more than $4.1 million over the next three years, a 44 percent savings over current long-distance prices offered by AT&T, the state's primary long-distance provider.Savings at state facilities are expected to range from 20 percent to 80 percent over previous long-distance charges.Under the new contract, Maryland's annual long-distance bill should shrink from about $3.2 million to $1.8 million, said Martin W. Walsh Jr., secretary of the Department of General Services.
