I, for one, am tired of the media portraying the Ray Rice case as an issue of men abusing women. I haven't heard ANY of the talking heads mention that Janay struck Ray. That is domestic violence as well. I am not excusing Ray or blaming Janay. What I am tired of is domestic violence being portrayed as a MAN problem. Nurmerous studies have proven that domestic violence is perpetrated as often…

Learn about the importance of bees for food sources and the joy of keeping bees as a hobbyist

The Mississippi Valley beekeepers are hosting a bee class February 16th from 9am to 3pm. The class will be held at the Farm Bureau lower level at 330 South 36th street in Quincy.   We’ll be sharing information about the importance of bees for food sources, and the joy of keeping bees as a hobbyist.  The class is for those who have interested in either keeping bees or seeing the benefits of bees in their lives.

Agriculturalists, retirees, hobbyist, Health conscious consumers and kids are encouraged to attend.  Companion bee hives can increase crop production by 30%.  Kids can keep bees for 4H projects, and hobbyists can use a variety of bee bi-products like Honey, Wax, and balms. 

We will also explain the types of honey and help consumers be able to understand honey grades, and be able to make more informed purchasing decisions.  Those suffering for allergies can often find local honey has the pollen they suffer from the most and can work to build a tolerance from their allergies.

Cost is $30 for an individual or $30 for the whole family, which includes class, introduction to beekeeping book and a year’s membership to the local association. 

Reservations are not required but are appreciated, to Guy Spoonmore at 217-653-9804 or visit mvbeekeepers.com for more information.
