It's sad that people's rights are often taken away in the name of "zoning" and what other people think their neighbors should be doing with their lives. I doubt the city intentionally attacked this lady's beekeeping, but other city's have overstepped their authority aplenty and I grow tired of seeing it happen.

And as for the bees, too many people these days seem to think 'creepy crawly' means 'keep them away', when oft-times they are far more essential or beneficial for us than they are made out to be. People need to stop watching movies of killer giant spiders and start learning hands-on how life actually works.

So there! lol (I'm talking to the people who let cities zone us to death)

Just wondering---
If they had legal bees before the zoning was changed--they should have a right to be 'grandfathered' in under the new zoning.

In a radio interview yesterday, Mayor Love made getting rid of "burdensome regulations" a linchpin of her congressional campaign. Here is a fine opportunity to put her money where her mouth is.

without bees we would all starve to death. Bees are dying, our food source may go with it, anything to encourage bees should be promoted.
besides it is un-utahn to dislike bees
