The bumper sticker on the sheriff's
department cruiser said "Re-elect Doug
Harvey." The bumper stickers on other
sheriff's cars read the same. Unfair? Un-
"There's no law against it," says Sheriff
Douglas Harvey. "It's being done all over
the United States. Some sheriffs even have
their names painted on county cars."
Asked if he thinks putting campaign
stickers on county cruisers is fair to his

situated at only two sites.
A second part of the accord
would freeze land and sea-based
