Ex-Sheriff Timothy Swanson seems to think this whole debacle he instituted is some kind of a game. He said, "If that's the game they want to play, then I'll play, too" ("County won't pay Swanson's legal bill," Jan. 2).

If he wants to play games, I suggest he get himself a Monopoly board game. It has all kinds of things to do to fill time in retirement. He can spend lots of money buying and selling properties and going to jail and then getting out free, and all without spending taxpayers' hard-earned money for his amusement. Sounds like a winner to me!

He's retired. He should go to Florida and see what he can stir up there.
