Town Orders Woman to Remove Beehive
VENITA PARK, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis suburb is giving the beehive the boot. Venita Park's board of aldermen voted 4-1 Monday to order resident Verna Gremaud to remove a beehive she placed in a
community garden on city property. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Gremaud spent $300 on the beehive with the hope of helping plants in the garden thrive. The discussion at the meeting became heated. Mayor James McGee ordered several people escorted from the meeting for being disruptive. McGee says there is a liability issue if the bees should sting someone.
