Since Dec. 25, the sheriff’s office has been called to the home seven times for a variety of disturbance calls, sheriff’s office communications manager Stephen Harmon said. “It’s a continual thing between two brothers,” Warren County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Tommy Smith said at the scene. Deputies had been called to the home Monday night on a disturbance call, and dhighland@bgdailynews.com/783-3243 Warren County Sheriff’s Capt. Maxie Jones shot a Bowling Green man in the left shoulder Tuesday after deputies were called to 3293 Garrett Hollow Road on a family disturbance call. Jones had arrived at the home when Richard Humphrey, 51, brandished a firearm, Kentucky State Police spokesman Trooper Jonathan Biven said at the scene. Jones told Humphrey repeatedly to put down the weapon, but Humphrey did not comply. Jones pulled his service weapon and fired twice, striking Humphrey once. State police processed a right, front corner area inside the home Tuesday night. In an otherwise quiet, rural setting, Humphrey ran from deputies into the wooded area behind the home, Harmon said. The Warren County Sheriff’s Office called state police to investigate the shooting. Jones has been placed on paid administrative leave, which is routine in such circumstances, Smith said. Humphrey was taken by ambulance to The Medical Center and then flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

Joe Imel/Daily News SIMPSON COUNTY Zoning panel votes to OK rock quarry Meeting takes nearly seven hours By JUSTIN STORY The Daily News jstory@bgdailynews.com/783-3256 FRANKLIN — After listening to nearly seven hours of testimony, the Franklin-Simpson Zoning Board of Adjustment voted 3-2 to issue a conditional-use permit allowing the construction of a rock quarry to be operated by a division of Charles Deweese Construction of Franklin. The board added conditions requiring traffic from the quarry to only exit toward Ky. 1008, the construction of earthen berms at least 15 feet tall and operating hours from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to noon Saturday. An overflow crowd gathered at the Simpson County Courthouse for the meeting, with spectators spilling out of the courtroom and into the hallways, where the meeting was broadcast over a public address system. The rock and lime quarry, to be built on 87.68 acres on Ditmore Ford Road in an area that had been zoned for agriculture, became a lightning rod for controversy in the past week, with several neighbors raising concerns about traffic safety, noise, air pollution, possible environmental problems and the potential decline of property values.
