A 93-year-old Central Texas woman was fatally shot at her home by a police officer – who has a history of fatal shootings when after she allegedly brandished a gun, the Hearne Police Department said Wednesday.

Pearlie Golden, a longtime resident of Hearne who was affectionately known to her neighbors as Ms. Sully, was shot Tuesday night by Officer Steven Stem, Robertson County District Attorney Coty Siegert said.

Stem was responding to a 911 call about a disturbance involving a woman with a gun.

According to KBTX, Golden was shot five times after raising her weapon. The station also reports that it was Golden’s nephew who called police about the dispute.

According to the station,

Patients who use medical marijuana for pain and other chronic symptoms can take an unwanted hit: Insurers don't cover the treatment, which costs as much as $1,000 a month.

Once the drug of choice for hippies and rebellious teens, marijuana in recent years has gained more mainstream acceptance for its ability to boost appetite, dull pain and reduce seizures in everyone from epilepsy to cancer patients.

Still, insurers are reluctant to cover it, in part because of conflicting laws. While 21 U.S. states have passed laws approving it for medical use, the drug still is illegal federally and in most states.

But perhaps the biggest hurdle for insurers is the U.S. Food and Drug Administrati

From the day she came home, Matilda the foster kitten has been obsessed with Lisa Revella Morabito's pit bulls. And Morabito has a lot of pit bulls to capture this girl's not-always-completely-useful attention.

"She tries to nurse off of Spike," says Morabito, "which is funny since he's our only male dog."

Spike, the boy, is 9 years old, and, no, he is not lactating. Piglet is a deaf 8-year-old pit mix who was rescued from a dog fighting situation about seven years ago, and is now a therapy dog. Betty White, also a pit, is 7 years old and was brought to BARCS -- the Baltimore anim

When 16-year-old Grace Bush receives her high school diploma this week, she won’t be looking forward to four years in college -- but that's not because she won’t be getting a higher degree. Bush received her college diploma days before graduating high school, according to CBS Miami.

Bush attended Florida Atlantic University High School in Boca Raton where students are given the opportunity to dual enroll in college courses and earn credits for a higher degree, according to the Sun Sentinel.

“I started when I was 13 at Broward College and I also took my classes throughout the summer, so I was able to finish it before four years,” Bush, who received her degree from Florida Atlantic Unive

The rodent fountain of youth may not be filled with water, but with blood. A trio of new studies has discovered that the blood of young mice appears to reverse some of the effects of aging when put into the circulatory systems of elderly mice.

After combining the blood circulations of two mice by conjoining them — one old, the other young — researchers found dramatic improvements in the older mouse’s muscle and brain. After four weeks, stem cells in both those areas got a boost of activity and were better able to produce neurons and muscle tissue.

They later discovered that injections of a special protein found abundantly in young blood — or even transfusions of whole young blood — giv

ELIMSPORT, PA. — Authorities investigating the carbon monoxide deaths of two adults and three children in a north-central Pennsylvania cabin said the mother of two of the children had left early in the morning, before the tragedy was discovered.

Lycoming County Coroner Chuck Kiessling said Sunday the mother of two girls, aged 4 and 9, left the small cabin with another woman about 5 a.m. Saturday after a night of partying. He said police do not believe evidence supports criminal charges against the mother.

Kiessling said the girls, a man, a woman and the woman's 3-year-old son all died in their sleep of carbon monoxide toxicity caused by an improperly ventilated propane heater.

The eight cows damaged cars, trampled on residents' gardens and left behind cowpats as they caused chaos after going on the run.

The cows were let loose when a tractor and trailer transporting them overturned on a busy road and it took three hours to round them up.

One officer was taken to hospital after suffering injuries when a startled cow charged at him during the incident in Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

Craig Evry, Avon and Somerset police spokesman, said: "There was an accident involving a trailer on Friday lunch time which led to a number of cows escaping.

"Officers attended the scene to try and round up the cows.

"One of the officers was injured after a cow ran into him and

A New Jersey family whose terrier-pit bull mix escaped from their backyard during Superstorm Sandy went to an animal shelter this week to adopt a new pet and came home with their old dog.

Chuck James tells The Associated Press that his family searched for the brown-and-white dog named Reckless for months after the October 2012 storm before finally giving up hope.

"We reported him missing and called the shelters periodically, just hoping they had him," James said Saturday. "We always kept our hopes up, but eventually it's time to move on."

James said the family had planned in recent weeks to get a new dog as a 10th birthday surprise for their eldest daughter, Ally.

But when the fa

This fisherman's catch is goblin up the headlines.

A Florida shrimper accidentally caught an incredibly rare Goblin Shark off the coast of Key West, Florida, on April 19, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"I didn't even know what it was," fisherman Carl Moore said. "I didn't get the tape measure out because that thing's got some wicked teeth, they could do some damage."

Instead, Moore snapped some quick photos and threw the shark back in the ocean.

Moore didn't report the find to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration until Thursday. According to the NOAA, the 18-foot-long shark is only the second ever seen in the Gulf. It is "one of the rarest species of sharks,"

The woman named Vivian Maier died alone and unknown. By “accident” a huge trunk filled with 100,000 films and negatives were discovered in 2007 that revealed, although she worked as a nanny, her great passion was photography. And no one knew it.

A video clip, from a documentary, “Finding Vivian Maier“, shows that once uncovered, her street photos — mostly taken in Chicago — took the art world by storm.

“Finding Vivian Maier traces the life story of the late Vivien Maier, a career nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs has earned her a posthumous reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers.”

In 2007, John Maloof, a young w
