With school resuming early next week after the Christmas break, drivers should be especially vigilant for pedestrians before and after school hours.

Drivers need to watch out for children walking and biking to and from school which includes those getting out of cars in school parking lots which can be particularly dangerous.

We  need to pay special attention to our greatest resource, our children!


Now is the time to make your New Year’s Resolutions!

Most people make the usual resolutions to eat a healthy diet, stop smoking, exercise more and save more.

Whatever yours are, try to stick with them. I’ve been  told that it only takes 90 days to make a change in your life!


Here’s a twist on how to make sure you get your blackeyed peas on New Year’s Day.

15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained

15.8 oz. can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
