After several hours and two rounds of formal interviews, the Taylorsville City Commission named Phil Crumpton as its new police chief by a 5-0 vote pending an agreement regarding salary and benefits Friday afternoon.
Crumpton, who is currently a major/operations officer for the City of Wilmore Police Department is no stranger to Spencer County. Crumpton said that he began his career with the Kentucky State Police as a patrol officer working in Spencer and Shelby counties in 1991.
Another week, another discussion regarding that pesky 911 services contract with the Kentucky State Police. This time the meeting was held in the city hall annex with representatives from the city, county and 911 commission present.
Once again politics reared its ugly head and participants argued over whether or not to stick with KSP or go a different route.

However, you shouldn’t convert from yearlong breeding to a shortened breeding season without a lot of planning.
The week of baseball’s All-Star break is considered the slowest period of the year in sports. With the boys of summer on a four-day hiatus and football players only starting to pack for training camp, there’s a national lull in most sports.
The cooler temperatures and lower humidity that spread across Kentucky this week made it feel more like early fall than the dog days of summer.
Fall hunting season seems closer with a crispness in the air in mid-July. And in reality, it isn’t far off. Early fall squirrel season in Kentucky opens in less than a month.
Spending time at the shooting range now not only is fun but it’s also a surefire way to ensure you’ll be ready when it counts this fall.
The story is told of the colorful, nineteenth-century gifted violinist, Niccolo Paganini, who on one occasion was performing before a packed house, playing a difficult piece of music, accompanied by a full orchestra giving him magnificent support.
