Panhandle Live for Oct. 4, 2012

We had a lot of fun today. State Apiarist with the WV Department of Agriculture Paul Poling stopped in to talk about the state's honey bee population. Things are looking up after some severe declines in recent years. He brought Les Messer, owner and operator of Mountain Meadows Bee Company along to offer a first hand account of what has been happening. The Department of Agriculture has a new book for anyone interested in taking up bee keeping as a hobby or even as a business.
Kevin Knowles and Tom Tucker came by as well. They were promoting this year's Bob Elmer Celebrity Sports Breakfast. It will be at the Holiday Inn on October 20th.
And that same day State Agriculture Commissioner Gus Douglass will be in town for the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival. He'll be honoring some people in this area out at the Inwood Farmer's Market as part of an event they are hosting.
