  • Don't you wish they'd make up their minds?

    "In Reversal, Panel Urges Mammograms at 50, Not 40." That was the headline.

    New York Times reporter Gina Kolata's story last week just made me shake my head in frustration.

    For years, we've been told of the importance of yearly mammograms once women hit age 40. They're not painful for most of us, but they're no picnic either.

    The man found guilty of shooting a Campbellsville woman and kidnapping her brother in 2003 has filed another appeal, asking a Taylor Circuit Court judge to vacate his sentence.

    Harry "Robert" McCrobie Jr., 30, of 313A Keeneland Drive in Elizabethtown was found guilty in March 2005 of kidnapping, first-degree burglary, first-degree assault and three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment.

    Three months later, he was sentenced to 24 years in prison - twice what a jury had recommended. An appeal filed following the sentence has since been denied.
