The Pirates are now 4-5 overall and hold a 3-4 Twin Lakes Conference record. TR had to take a come- from-behind win from Pocahontas as the Poky girls held a 13-8 first quarter and 29-25 halftime margin. The Pirates took over 40-39 at the end of three before pulling out the five-point win. Jeanne Bakken and Carrie Jacobson provided the scoring power for TR as Bakken tallied 10 baskets and three of six from the free throw line for 23 and Jacobson scored 22 on nine baskets and four of eight irom the line. Jana Wehrspann was the only other Pirate in double figures with 12. Cindy Christian led the PHS squad with eight baskets and 10 free throws for 26 points. Cecilia Rosjford added 12. Despite a 29-point fourth quarter performance, the Pirates were unable to take a victory from Rolfe as the RH crew won 71-61 last Friday night. Rolfe led all the way with quarter scores of 18-10, 33-24 and 51-32 before TR closed the gap in the fourth quarter. The difference in the fray was turnovers, according to Muyskens who said, "They had very few turnovers and we made quite a few more than they did." He described the fourth quarter as "very exciting ball" asi his girls ripped the nets on 13 of 16 field goal attempts. Overall game percentages showed TR shooting 47.3 while Rolfe scored 52 per cent from the field. Jacobson and Bakken again provided the scoring as Jacobson tallied 26 and Bakken hit 22. Both managed 11 baskets with Jacobson also managing {our of six from the charity line. Julie Brinkman's 41 points contributed to the Rolfe defeat as the RHS forward •cored 15 baskets and 11 of 17 from the line. Jean Winkleblack was next with 22. Jennifer Wood led the Pirate rebounders with eight while Mary Foth had five. The Pirate boys and girls travel to Pocahontas, Jan. 4. Twin Rivers 58 C.Jacobson.. 9 4-8 3 22 J. Wehrspann 5 2-4 1 12 J.

There have been over 80 persons in the jail this year and the rate of occupation has gone down since last year and the previous years. Generally the "rate of female inmates has risen in the past two years," said Andersen. In his eight years of office, the sheriff has held approximately 1,200 persons in the Humboldt jail, with only two escapes. Most of his "guests" are involved in crimes such as runaways, bad checks, pubhY'and operating a motor vehicle-while under the. influence (OMVUI). "Most crime is committed by the 17 to 25 age group," said Anderson. He attributes their crime to "growing pains, some are newly married and get into financial trouble, they can't handle the added responsibilities that are suddenly dumped into their lap." Also, "possibly this group has a larger population than the rest. They have a lot of energy and don't know whore to put it," he added. The county sheriff is elected and is the only major law enforcement officer in the country directly responsible to the people he serves. He must enforce all laws enacted for the protection of lives, persons, property, health and morals of the people. That covers just about every fact of human activity. Unlike some agencies . which have only criminal jursidiclion, the sheriff's responsT&Ilities include civil cases as well. It is his duty to preserve the'peace within the county, using such force as may be necessary and to prevent breaches of the peace, suppress affrays and unlawful assemblies. It is also his right and duty to arrest all persons who oppose execution of process. Through the sheriff or his deputies the office makes investigations for the county attorney, the courts and Medical Examiner, and serves writs (warrants, summons, garnishments, evictions, etc.) and other documents in • connection with cases both criminal iind ctviVi iribts ht&rft in the courts of the county. He and the Medical Examiner visit the scene of and investigate violent and mysterious deaths, and he assists the examiner and attorney whenever an inquest is ordered to deterime the cause of death. The sheriff and his staff are also officers of the district court, aid in drawing prospective jurors, and, by deputies acting as court officers, are responsible for juries during court trials and while they are deliberating on cases. Andersen is a member of the concealed weapons licensing board and attends numerous safety, traffic meetings, and other seminars, both state and local, having to do with matters pertaining to At the scene One of the frequent responsibilities of the Humboldt County Sheriff's Department is the investigation of traffic accidents in the county outside the City of Humboldt.

"The people of Humboldt County are the greatest in the world for helping each other out in time of disaster," Andersen related. "If we ever need help, we just ask, and they help us right away." Requirements for a law enforcement job are compassion, a lot of common sense, and constant training. A county sheriff must be an advisor, marriage counselor, and sometimes a severe law enforcer.
