Call it chutzpah, nerve, audacity or gall, but don't call the request by Anne Arundel Sheriff Robert Pepersack for a whopping big raise surprising. This is, after all, the man who sued the county executive when he cut the undersheriff out of the budget. Now, Mr. Pepersack wants state lawmakers to boost the sheriff's salary from $42,000 to $65,000. He notes correctly that the increase would not take effect until after he finishes his four-year term. He also acknowledges he intends to run for a second term (which he stands a good chance of winning)

Anne Arundel County State's Attorney Frank Weathersbee seems to be making a greater effort to help county residents feel safe. In the last few weeks, he has publicized the revival of two initiatives -- a team to handle the soaring number of juvenile crime cases and a bad-check unit to go after petty check bouncers. Such programs, though not flashy, are necessary pieces of the criminal justice system.Statistics alone demand a concerted, coordinated method for handling juvenile crime. This year Mr. Weathersbee's office expects 1,400 juvenile cases, up from 1,000 in 1990.
