Big Rig Bees Find New Home

The second Wendy Adams heard the buzz about a bee-carrying big rig overturning, she flew into action.

So she hopped in her honey bee-mobile and soared to the scene of the accident, but saving the insects wasn't the hardest part.

Her next step? Helping the orphaned bees find foster homes. 

That's when new beekeeper Robert Young stepped in. 

This is his first time beekeeping, but says he couldn't pass up the chance to help. 

The beekeepers have been relying on their own resources but really could use a few of these key items including hay, sugar, and extra queens. 

If you would like to assist, you can visit the Bee At Peace Rescue Fund's Facebook Page.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Shoe Plant Moves to Hazlehurst

HAZLEHURST, Ga. (AP) - Executives with Wal-Mart Stores Inc. say they plan to move production of some shoes from overseas to a manufacturing plant in south Georgia, which they say will create 250 jobs in the state.

The retailer on Thursday announced plans for the facility in Hazlehurst, a Jeff Davis County town about 100 miles west of Savannah.

Bentonville, Ark.-based Walmart said its longtime supplier Elan-Polo Inc. will start production of injection-molded footwear in March 2014 in Hazlehurst as part of a joint venture with McPherson Manufacturing.

Daylight Saving This Weekend

WASHINGTON (AP) - It's time to fall back.

Most Americans will be able to get an extra hour of sleep this weekend thanks to the annual shift back to standard time.

The change officially occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, but most people will set their clocks back before heading to bed Saturday night.

Residents of Hawaii, most of Arizona and some U.S. territories don't have to change since they do not observe daylight saving time.

Public safety officials say this is also a good time to put a new battery in the smoke alarm, no matter where you live.

Daylight saving time returns at 2 a.m. local time March 9.
