The buzz around the courthouse is all about bees—thousands and thousands of bees.
“I don’t want to get any closer than I am!” said Courtney Hall, who works with the police jury. “I don’t think these are African bees. Otherwise, we’d be in trouble!”
“Well, I was coming down to do work at the clerk’s office, I heard there’s this huge beehive out here behind the courthouse,” said Rob Shadoin, a lawyer.
“The only reason I feel comfortable standing under here is that the bees won’t sting me, because it’s professional courtesy and all, with me being a lawyer. I feel pretty safe!” said Shadoin.
But everyone who stops and looks, or is stopped dead in their tracks, hopes someone can lay down the law with the bees.
“Since I’m not a fan of bees because they can be mean, I’d like to see them gotten rid of!” said Shadoin.
Not to worry—officials called a beekeeper, who easily removed the growing beehive that afternoon.
