Mingo motorcycle ride to honor slain sheriff

WILLIAMSON — A motorcycle rally in Mingo County will take on a special meaning this year.

The Rally in the Valley set for May 3-5 in downtown Williamson will have a motorcycle ride to honor the late Sheriff Eugene Crum.

The Sheriff Eugene Crum Memorial Poker Run will start at 12:30 p.m. May 5.

Organizer Paul Price of the Sidney, Ky.-based club Appalachian Brotherhood says the route is still being worked out. He expects at least 200 motorcyclists will participate.

Price says the cost is $15 per motorcycle. Proceeds will benefit the sheriff’s department.

Crum was fatally shot April 3. His widow, Rosie, was appointed interim sheriff the next day.

The Rally in the Valley debuted last year as a one-day event.
