A disturbance in the force was felt Friday with the departure of McMinnville Police Department Lt. Chuck Taylor. After 35 years protecting and serving city residents, Taylor has retired.“This is strange for me,” said McMinnville Police Chief Bryan Denton. “I remember Chuck when I first started to work here about 200 years ago, which is what it feels like."Taylor was hired by the department in 1978 as a patrolman.
