The season is just around the corner, and the headlines should be on “who is the best team”. However, more often than not, it is on whom is violating some rule. Did my star player sign autographs for money, or did two or three of our players violate some lady at a bar? Who spent the summer riding around in an SUV with dealer plates and got paid for working at the car owner’s home? Then there are always the super student/athletes who failed summer school and will not get to play this season. These headlines are easily avoided if the university makes its policy that winning at any cost is replaced by winning within the rules. There was a time when the top football player on campus was also the top student on campus, but that went out when playing in a bowl game on January 7 paid more than all the alumni donations combined. It is a known fact that to win big every year you have to take a chance on one or more players who barely get into the university and who come from backgrounds marked by police blotters rather than honor rolls. Football, by nature, is a violent game and big, burly men will win over small scholarly men all the time. As I stated earlier, the university makes the decision–how important are the wins and how important is it to have a “look the other way” attitude when a young man is being recruited. Rose Hulman will never be national champion.

So, are you saying I should have said something when they started living in the swim team’s aluminum can recycle trailer?? LOL. They’ve been coming around for awhile now. That’s funny. Great job of a humane removal 🙂 Report Reply 0 replies · active 380 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down MJE · 379 weeks ago That’s not a beehive pictured, it’s a swarm. Report Reply 0 replies · active 379 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Geo · 379 weeks ago Good grief, someone please educate these folks on what they are seeing. This is a swarm of bees, this is how they divide and start a new hive. The old queen will leave the old hive and take about half of the worker bees with her. The swarm landed on the fence and sent out scout bees to look for a new home. The old hive will raise a new queen and continue on. If you were to look around the park area more than likely they would find a bee tree. Report Reply 0 replies · active 379 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” Crystal Dawson, a Wellington Recreation Commission employee, came back to work during her lunch hour Wednesday afternoon only to get the scare of her life.She parked the car on the south side of the WRC parking lot, got out, and saw this dark big lump of on the short metal parking lot fence.Dawson thought that was strange and went closer to look. What she discovered made her jump and run. It wasâ€¦ bees!For some reason, the fence had some sugar-water type substance and some worker bees flying around looking for a location for a new nest discovered it. They then got the queen bee and she and her swarm took to the sugar substance medal parking lot bar as the new colony home.Not knowing what to do Dawson called a bee removal company in Wichita. But they were charging too much.Dawson then remembered her neighbor Lonnie Hays is a bee enthusiast.So he was called in to remove the beehive.Hays said bee colonies are established when a mated queen and a larger contingent of worker bees break away from the home colony during the spring after a long hard winter huddled together.This group obviously moved en masse to a nest site which they determined to be the medal WRC parking lot bar. Once the swarm arrived, they were in the process of building a nest before Hays came and removed it to take it to his bee hive at his home.“The scary thing is that’s my neighbor,” Dawson said. “So I might be seeing those bees again.”WRC sports director Tanner Ford said he has a bee phobia. He wasn’t around for the official bee removal process.
