STOCKHOLM, Sweden - A Swedish beekeeper has taken his neighbor to court for killing his swarm, demanding that he pay compensation, Sweden's TT news agency reported yesterday. The bees left their hive in the rural village of Vittaryd and flew into the neighbor's garden. The neighbor, fearful of being stung, doused the unwanted guests with a garden hose. The shock of the cold water killed the bees, the news agency said. The incensed beekeeper has accused his neighbor of "arbitrary conduct" and demanded 10,000 kronor ($933)

ST. LOUIS -- The Baltimore BayRunners didn't play like a team that was in the midst of a 12-game losing streak last night as they met the St. Louis Swarm at the Family Arena. In the end, though, the result was the same. The BayRunners started the first half shooting well from the floor (.500), but Swarm guard Danny Johnson came up hot, too. Johnson ended up with a game-high 28 points and offset a good night by BayRunners forward Rodney Elliott, who had 27, to lead St. Louis to a 110-100 win over the BayRunners.

For a little more than three minutes, the BayRunners let St. Louis Swarm guard Danny Johnson make his highlight tape. It included just about everything he possibly could want an NBA scout to see -- two three-pointers, a monster dunk, two steals, a 15-foot jumper and a penetration layup. When Johnson was finished, he had accounted for 15 points in a 17-0 Swarm run that basically ended the night in the third quarter for the BayRunners and led to an eventual, 88-81 win before 2,521 at Baltimore Arena last night.

The other night in North Baltimore, a swarm of crows — hundreds of them — filled the canyon of high-rise apartment buildings along University Parkway, between Calvert and Charles streets, and for a moment I thought I had been transported to a surreal moment in a Harry Potter movie, all gold and black and macabre. It was about 7 o'clock, the third day of daylight-saving time, so there was just enough orange in the western sky to provide contrast to the large, black birds as they raced to the left and right, soaring and darting, twisting and diving — an aerial dance spasmodic.

If you are ever going to see a termite, now's the time. They swarm in the spring, at dusk, usually after a rain.Often, termites are confused with flying ants. There are differences: Ants have a pinched or thin waist; termites have a thick waist. An ant's antennae are bent; a termite's are straight. Ants have eyes; termites don't. Both have two pairs of wings, but for ants, the pair closest to the head is longer than the second pair. The termites' two pairs of wings are equal in length.Both ants and subterranean termites (the type of termite we have in this area)

On Saturday afternoon, Bel Air was crawling with people donning green shirts and looking for something. While the folks wearing green shirts were looking for items as part of a scavenger hunt, they were helping in a small way to find effective treatments for melanoma. This was the fifth year for the Bel Air Scavenger Hunt, but the first time the event was organized as a fundraiser. The beneficiary of the event is the foundation Kelly's Dream, established two years ago with the goal of promoting the organization of many small events to raise money to fight melanoma.
