    In the fall of 1999, Melvin James was a freshman at Wilberforce University, where he received partial scholarships for art and basketball.

    Everything seemed to be going fine, until he noticed something unusual while sitting in class.

    "I realized I couldn't read the book," James said.

    Shortly thereafter, James was diagnosed with Leber hereditary optic neuropathy, a condition that affects approximately one in 8,500 people and that leads to the degeneration of the optic nerve, according to the International Foundation for Optic Nerve Disease.

  • Slow down, buckle up

    Many, maybe even most, drivers will get a ticket at some time in their lives.

    Speeding is the most frequent offense, but it's not the only one. Reckless driving, ignoring traffic control devices and not wearing a seat belt can all attract the attention of a law enforcement officer in Kentucky.

    No one likes getting pulled over, but almost every time, if we are being honest, we know what driving violation we have committed before the officer asks for our license and registration.

  • It’s time for pecan pie

    I've been trying a lot of new dishes lately. I don't know why, maybe it has something to do with winter coming, a connection with the squirrelly part of my family.

    And speaking of nuts, this new pecan pie recipe I tried is so good it rivals my mom's favorite pie.

    She wasn't a frequent pie baker, but pecan pie was her favorite and this time of year, when the pecans came in, she'd fix it often.

    This first recipe is from Sunnyland Farms in Albany, Ga., and it is to die for.
