As fatal crashes rise on South 641 in Calloway County, officials are looking to reinstate a resolution prioritizing state action on the road.

Calloway County Sheriff Bill Marcum announced Thursday that he plans to run for a third term.  He said the idea of not running again has never crossed his mind. 

Marcum has served as sheriff since 2007 but has been in Murray since 1973 when he helped set up the Murray-Calloway County Ambulance Service and was a deputy under Max Morris. 

Marcum said he’s proud of improving the office’s functionality, facilities and relations with other law enforcement departments.
