    Already posted in Bee news a few days back, but now making all the local channels.

    Interestingly our NC Governor has bees at the State Capital , that WOULD NOT meet this 75 ft code that was arbitrarily chosen by someone who knew nothing about bees.

    Also NC State University has a number of research programs on bees and beekeeping.

    Little town mentality.

    The Judge ruled against her yesterday , and instructed her to give up her bee hives.

    I hope she finds someone to file an appeal, make a point of it.

    File a motion of appeal and a get a stay to prevent them from doing anything until appeal is heard, should take a few years

    Rick Santorum says "Off w/ her head." :)

    This ordinance is rediculous and should be repealed by the Town Board.
