But that's not the way life is

MINICK'S plan for the sher-
iff's department is to "get back
to the basics." He stated at a,
"Meet the Candidates" night in
Chelsea that he wants to limitI
the authority of the sheriff'st
department and concentrae on,
local law enforcement.
Although Minick has accusedc
Postill of "acting like a po-
litician and statesman rather<
than a police officer," Postill<
claims that these tactics have
brought more federal grants in-
to the county.
"With this money," he said,
"I have been able to expand
the sheriff's department to bet-
ter serve the needs of the coun-
money to increase the number
of deputies from 33 in 1972 to
nearly 100. With the added per-
sonnel the sheriff's department
has expanded road patrol in
rural areas of the county.
Under the present system
township and villages may con-
tract sheriff's deputies rather
than starting their own policej
departments. Minick has said
that "Postill forced some vil-
lages to sign contracts." Postill
admitted he has "aggressively
pursued contracts" because
small police departments would
not receive the federal fund-
ing the larger sheriff's depart-
ment does. According to Postill,

has provided some lively ex-
changes. Sparks have flown in
discussing such questions as
the need for a national health
insurance plan, the defense
budget, and unemployment and
the economy.
As a doctor, Pierce has made
an issue of national health care
by coming out strongly in favor.
During a recent debate with
Pursell at the Ann Arbor Pub-
lic Library, Pierce said he'd,
