Taylor Co., KY: The last regular sheriff's patrol by horseback

2011-09-22 - Court Street, Campbellsville, KY - Photo by Larry Smith.
Here's a classic photo from Taylor County In the picture is former Taylor County Sheriff Junior Sprowls, Sprowls had lost his license after being charged with driving under the influence and since he could not drive. he went to the barn and got a horse. Junior was featured in every Kentucky Newspaper. I remember Junior very well. He was a colorful man with a great sense of humor and in my younger days of radio he would bring me a commercial to air for him during the election..."Vote for Sprowls on election day..." He paid some people to sing the jingle for him, and It really got the attention of Taylor County voters. In fact. He was elected jailer after his 2 terms as Taylor County Sheriff. - LARRY SMITH, still broadcasting from The BIG DAWG, FM 99.9 in Campbellsville, KY, a small micropolitan community 11.4 miles north of the Cane Valley/Coburg/Griffin Springs metroplex.
