Honeybees removed from attic

Honeybee populations may be shrinking around the world, but that wasn't the case at Victoria Clayton's circa 1866 house, where a bee expert spent much of Thursday removing a huge wax honeycomb and 30,000 of the buzzing creatures from an attic crawl space. Enter Gary G. Schempp, who is so intrigued by honeybees - that he sold his 30-year-old pest-control business five years ago to deal solely with them. http://bit.ly/IILC4n

Enjoy your dinner with a side of history

Diners get a little something extra with their meals at the Collins House in Merchantville. Call it a side order of history. Not to worry. It doesn't cost extra and won't boggle the mind, as it did to most of us in high school. In fact, it enhances the ambience and helps satisfy those with an appetite for things from the past.
