"Keeping bees dry"
Harrison Rede, 13, right, checks his bee boxes in his backyard on 16th Avenue South while under the cover of umbrellas with his moms, Laura Rede and Marcy Rede. Harrison won a scholarship from the Minnesota Hobby Beekeepers Association and his mentor, association president Terry McDaniel, visited Monday to teach Harrison how to check for mites. Fortunately, the Rede family had enough large umbrellas to keep afternoon showers away from the hive.
