Sheriff Sherman Block, whose department weathered a tumultuous year marred by a corruption scandal and brutality complaints, disclosed Wednesday that he has cancer of the prostate gland and will undergo surgery next month. The 66-year-old Block, who was reelected last spring as head of the nation's largest sheriff's department, told a news conference that he expects to recover fully from a malady that doctors have diagnosed as adenocarcinoma, or a gland-related cancer in his prostate.
