Loyd Have Mercy, Titusville's go-to place for Southern soul food, is about to get a "Restaurant: Impossible" face lift, with some help from the Food Network and local volunteers.
"Restaurant: Impossible" gives celebrity chef Robert Irvine two days and $10,000 and challenges him to turn around restaurants facing failure.
Loyd Have Mercy is known for its no-frills seafood, barbecue and fried chicken. The restaurant's name pays homage to owner Andrew Loyd's other job as pastor and founder of Greater Glory Life Center in Orlando.
Loyd Have Mercy has gone through ups and downs since opening in 2008. In 2012, the restaurant moved from it's original home on South Park Avenue to the Searstown Mall.
The restaurant currently occupies a stand-alone building near the mall. In January 2018, the restaurant was robbed and a worker was beaten with a shotgun.
You can now be ticketed for texting and driving, holding your phone in a school or construction zone
Starting today, you can now get an expensive ticket if you are caught texting and driving.
The new statewide texting and driving law took effect in July. It makes texting behind the wheel a primary violation. Kim Montes of the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) says that means that "if an officer looks over and sees you typing in that device, they can stop you for no other reason than that." In previous years, it was just a secondary offense, meaning motorists could only be cited for texting if they were stopped for other reasons, such as speeding.
More than 600 bills have been introduced for the 2020 Florida legislative session, slated to begin Jan. 14.

All would take effect July 1, 2020, except Senate Joint Resolution 282, which is conditioned on voter approval on the 2020 ballot.
