Beekeepers dressed in protective gear remove honeycombs from hive to extract honey. The Pilot/Marge Woodfin
“It’s a hobby that pays off,” Babette Rose said about the beekeeping activities she and her husband, Russ, began five years ago. “We started in 2004 with six hives at our home on Ocean View Drive in Smith River, and today we have eight hives at the house, 10 hives at the blueberry farm and seven a little farther up the north bank.”

The blueberry farm she referred to is the Winter Flowers Farm owned by their friends, Cheryl and Duane McKinney, approximately seven miles up the North Bank of the Chetco River, and the other property is a mile or so farther up.

When Babette added, “There are 20,000 to 40,000 bees to a hive,” the multiplication table began to ring up some serious numbers that indicate a lot of honey gathering activity this time of the year.

  • Asia shares swing higher as China nears seven year high
    Asian stock markets rose on Monday, with China stocks nearing a seven-year peak on hopes for more infrastructure spending and policy stimulus, while oil prices suffered further from excess supply. The Hang Seng China Enterprises Index (.HSCE) also added 3.5 percent after China allowed mainland mutual funds to buy Hong Kong stocks. After some early dithering, Japan's Nikkei (.N225) firmed 0.8 percent, helped by talk of demand for the new quarter and financial year. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan recouped early losses to gain 0.4 percent.
  • Oil prices drop on weak demand, potential Iran deal
    Oil prices fell on Monday as the market focused on whether Iran and six world powers would reach a deal that could add fuel to an already oversupplied market if sanctions against Tehran are lifted. "Any relaxation of Iran oil sanctions could see increased exports adding to swelling global supplies and further pressuring prices," ANZ said on Monday. Benchmark Brent crude futures (LCOc1) had dropped to $56.10 by 0600 GMT, down 31 cents as the market began to price in the possibility of a deal with Iran. Brokerage Phillip Futures said that it expected oil prices to fall to $50-53 for Brent and $46-48 for U.S. crude in the second quarter.
  • GM's Cadillac CT6 tests strategy for taking fat out of big cars
    When General Motors Co (GM.N) takes the wraps off its new Cadillac CT6 on Tuesday the most important thing about the vehicle could be what is under its skin. The CT6, to be unveiled ahead of the April 3-12 New York auto show, is an expensive car aimed more at boosting Cadillac’s brand image than sales volume. GM engineers are studying variations on the CT6’s multi-material construction for at least four other future vehicle architectures and other models could be derived from the CT6's “Omega” architecture, Travis Hester, CT6’s chief engineer, said in an interview.
