Connie Privett has had her recipe for Modjeskas for 20 years. She says it was given to her "by a dear lady, an acquaintance of my parents who made them as gifts for friends. " The woman's name is Dot McMullin, and her family and she took to calling it "Dot candy. " "We received some as a gift one Christmas and we loved them," Privett notes. It's her husband Larry's favorite candy. Privett says she fixes Modjeskas mainly at holiday-time. They're on the time-consuming side, as ingredients boil for long periods of time.

100 YEARS AGO - 1907 James Rice, through his Danville attorney, E.V. Puryear, has filed suit against the C.N.O. & T.P. railroad for $2,000 in damages. The case stems from when Rice was working for a railroad contractor in a Danville yard and was injured by hot ashes thrown from a locomotive. In a separate case, attorney Robert Harding is in Harrodsburg engaged in the suit of William Scanlon's administrator against the Southern railway. This is the third trial, as the other two resulted in a verdict each time for the plaintiff, but was reversed by the Court of Appeals.
