Letters to the Editor I read the article in your pa per on people dumping their rubbish and filth on other peo ple’s property and there should be a fine on doing that whether !or not they are located and -made to clean same up. On two different occasions, it has happened to me even in the face of the highway department placing a ‘‘No Dumping” sign in front of my property and having a sign of my own made and placed where anyone can see same but through the good ef forts of the sheriff’s department the offenders were located and made to clean same up. One party was located on West 135th Street in Cleveland where they have garbage and rubbish collections and the ot hers were a group of Govern ment Employes living nearby on the Nelson Ledge Road and placing markers throughout Ge auga county. There also should be a fine imposed on people who bring their cats and dogs to the coun try and throw the poor, dumb animals out to shift for them selves. Nearly every town and city employes a dog warden who will take the animals and try to find another home for them or else put them out of their misery. Yours truly, Wm. Spielman.

CHARDON PURL.iC[.-^,ny OEAUGA COUtTrLlSRA-v «-i3KA.r SEDVICF Single Copies 10c Volumue 103 Number 41 Sheriff Pleads Not Guilty to Indictments Sheriff Stuart Harland plea ded innocent this week in Common Pleas Court to a 48 count indictment related to his alleged pampering of George Gordon, erstwhile manager of the defunct Pettibone Club, who served a 60 day sen tence. Common Pleas Judge W illiam K. Thomas set the sheriff’s jury trial for Nov. 7. Twenty four of the original 72 counts in the indictment were thrown out because the court ruled that a sheriff cannot uninten tionally violate the criminal code. Judge Thomas ruled that the statement that Sheriff Harland “permitted” the acts to happen, “does not therefore unqualifiedly charge that the person acted intentionally and willfully.” The 24 counts which were thrown out, all related to al leged telephone calls made by Gordon, involved an alleged violation of the criminal code prohibiting willful refusal or neglect to perform a duty. But the sheriff was charged with only “permitting” the acts to happen. By throwing out the 24 counts the judge ruled out the possibility of removing the sheriff from office or placing any jail sentence against the law enforcement officer. Each of the dismissed 24 counts provided fines up to $100 and 20 day imprisonment, with further provision in a companion statute that the per son found guilty may be re moved from office on order of the court. The remaining 48 counts al so are based on telephone calls allegedly made by Gordon, and carr fines up to $100 each. They charged that the sheriff neglected or refused to con form to jail regulations and that he permitted Gordon to be dealt with less strictly than intended by his sentence.
