Lescal “Joe” Taylor of Crittenden was sworn in on Nov. 14 as the Grant County attorney. Circuit Judge Stephen Bates conducted the ceremony as Taylor’s wife, Pat, holds the Bible while Taylor takes the oath of office. Taylor defeated Jack Gatlin, who had been apponted as Grant County attorney earlier this year, in the Nov. 4 election. Taylor will fill the remainder of the term of office through 2009. This vacancy was created when Ed Lorenz retired as county attorney.
