Your Turn: Your Feedback On McCarthy, Rumble & Cancer Donation


By Diane Rutherford

Brian McCarthy, who's serving a 23 year to life sentence for the 1986 rape and murder of a Clarkson University student, has been denied parole.

Here's what some of you had to say:


"Glad for the family. Glad for justice."

Thomas J. Hamilton

"McCarthy should never get out because I don't think he will know act out in the real world."

Jill M. Rice

"He's lucky to even be alive. If it were my choice, he wouldn't be."

Clay A. Ashley


An Ogdensburg man faces federal charges.  Law enforcement officials say Jack Rumble swapped handguns for marijuana and tried to sell hand grenades.  Police raided his King Street home last week.

Here's an email about that story:


"I have known Jack Rumble for my entire life.  There is nothing wrong with collecting guns! What happened to the right to bear arms?  Jack is a good person, NOT A VILLAIN."

A Watertown woman donated $100,000 to the American Cancer Society in memory of her daughter and husband who died from the disease. Dawn Kellogg says the money came from her late daughter's life insurance policy.

Here's a sampling of your emails:


"What a beautiful and generous gift. Bless you and your efforts to fight for others' good health."

Larry A. Welt

"As a cancer survivor, there is always the fear that it may return. As a mother, sister and daughter, the fear is it will strike another. The hope is that a cure will be found and through generosity like this that helps to find that cure."
