  • It’s supposed to be good luck to eat black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day, and these two recipes are so good you’ll want to continue this tradition for sure.
    The Black-eyed Pea Dip recipe was sent to me by my mother in the mid-1970s, and it was called “Tennessee Caviar.” I’ve seen it under other names, too.
    It is great as a dip with chips or veggies, and can also be served on lettuce leaves as a salad.
    It’s delicious, and keeps a week in the fridge.

  • Kentucky State Police is preparing for Jan. 1, 2011, when they will begin issuing citations for violations of the texting law that went into effect July 15, 2010. The law (KRS 189.292) will prohibit drivers from texting while their vehicle is in motion.  
    For drivers who are under eighteen, the law (KRS 189.294) goes a step further by prohibiting both texting and cell phone use for this age group.
    Spokesperson for KSP, Lt. David Jude says that the new law was designed to place the drivers’ focus back on the road instead of an electronic device.
