No-smoking signs will go up in all seven San Diego County jail facilities July 1, and a spokesman for Sheriff John Duffy said they will apply to everyone--inmates, jailers and other employees. Deputies going off duty or on breaks will be allowed to smoke outside jail buildings, but prisoners will not have that privilege. Nor will inmates be allowed to have tobacco products, which under Duffy's new policy will be considered contraband.

In a surprise announcement, Sheriff John Duffy said today he won't run for reelection. Duffy had earlier indicated that he would run for a record sixth term. But at a news conference, Duffy said he was tired of battling the media and now planned to retire in January, 1991, when his current term expires. Duffy was facing a challenge from several law enforcement veterans in next June's primary, including one from a subordinate, Sheriff's Capt.

Sheriff John Duffy, who opened a secret bank account for drug forfeiture money two months ago to bypass restrictions set by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, cannot touch the nearly $700,000 in estimated deposits he has accrued, a Superior Court judge ruled Friday. Judge Harrison Hollywood also ruled that the county cannot place the money in its treasury--as it had hoped--before a Nov. 27 court hearing to determine who legally controls the funds.

Congratulations! You've accomplished your end, which was to get rid of Sheriff John Duffy. Well, almost. Duffy still has more than a year to serve and one wonders just how effectively the San Diego County Sheriff's Department will function without his hand on the tiller. Yes, you won when a judge overruled Sheriff Duffy's Fourth Amendment rights in preference to your "freedom of the press" rights, which more and more has come to mean that you can publish anything, true or false.

The labor organization that represents the San Diego County Sheriff's Department accused sheriff's candidate Jim Roache Tuesday of trying to discredit its membership. In a letter signed by nine of its officers, the Deputy Sheriff's Assn. asked Roache, a sheriff's captain, to stop asserting that his opponent, Assistant Sheriff Jack Drown, coerced members into supporting Drown for sheriff. Drown and Roache are running to succeed Sheriff John Duffy.

A community group in Fallbrook held a meeting with all the candidates for sheriff a week ago, which was most enlightening. I would hope that more groups do the same, because there doesn't appear to be much in the press about this very important race. One observation made was a statement by one of the candidates, a Mr. (Jack) Drown. He said he has worked for no one else but the Sheriff's Department in his entire adult life--over 20 years providing us, the citizens of this county, with the best law enforcement possible, claiming that no other candidate matches his experience and skills.

Because San Diego County has the most crowded jail system in the nation, the advent of 1,000 jail beds is a significant landmark--worthy of at least a temporary truce between the sheriff and the Board of Supervisors. Instead, Sheriff John Duffy decided to escalate the hostilities.

Sheriff John Duffy maliciously took a deputy off his teaching job and must help pay $175,000 of a $200,000 award, a San Diego Superior Court jury decided Friday. In addition, Duffy was ordered to appear in court Monday to discuss his net worth because the verdict entitles former Sheriff's Sgt. John DeAngelis to pursue additional damages designed solely to punish Duffy, said DeAngelis' attorney, Thomas R. Laube.

Jim Roache, campaigning hard against the legacy of Sheriff John Duffy, and Jack Drown, running on the strength of Duffy's endorsement and money machine, were emerging as the two top vote-getters in Tuesday's primary election for San Diego County sheriff. Both are vying to become the first new sheriff in two decades.

I'm still not impressed. George Foreman, boxing blob that he is, has yet to fight anyone that wasn't over the hill, overweight, overrated or simply a stiff. Aside from his quick KO of an aging Ken Norton, and the best low blow of the century (Hello, Larry!), Gerry Cooney's only claim to fame is that he is big and white. Before Foreman gets a shot at Mike Tyson, investigate. Then, if he's cleared, make Foreman fight a real boxer. Somebody in the top 10, and I don't mean age bracket.
