A jail so crowded that most convicts serve only a fraction of their sentences. Slow response times by deputies in rural San Joaquin County that outrage residents. A department that has faced upheaval after its leader was convicted of federal mail fraud and subsequently retired in the middle of his term. These are the challenges facing the county's new sheriff-coroner, and voters this fall are tasked with choosing between two candidates who have decades of experience.

Dennis Lobenberg, 56, who retired last year as a deputy chief with the California Highway Patrol, is facing off against current Assistant Sheriff Steve Moore, 51.

    To solve the jail crowding, do like the Maricopa Co. (ARIZ) does and put them all in tents, feed them bolonga sandwiches three meals a day, no tv, recreation area, or electricity and work on a chain gang during the day. Do you think the criminals will want to be repeat visitors at the cross-bar hotel???? I don't think so. If the ACLU complains, put them in there too.
