Bees Buzz Clovis Home For Hours


A swarm of bees made an unexpected landing in the front yard of a Clovis family of six Wednesday. At first the Grieco family was frightened but later became frustrated with the insect problem.

Eight hundred to a thousand bees formed what looked like a football shape swarm on a big branch on the Griecos' front yard tree. After working the phone for more than an hour they discovered no one wanted to haul away their uninvited guests.

Stacy and Tom Grieco have four daughters and they were concerned about their safety going in and out of their home. They called the City of Clovis, Fresno State and bee farmers for help. But no one seemed interested about their problem. Stacy says a few offered advice. "They just said spray Raid on it and it will dissipate. They said it will go away in about an hour."

Mexico Earthquake Rattles Nerves Of Some Valley Residents


A strong, 7.4 magnitude earthquake rattled Mexico Tuesday. Local officials report 800 homes are now piles of rubble. The quake hit in the southern part of the country, in the state of Oaxaca.

A large community of people from Oaxaca live in the Central Valley, including the owners of Café Oaxaca and Bakery in Clovis.

Tuesday, there were more than pastries on their minds.

"I was scared for my family yes. My mom says she was nervous about it," said Rosario Garcia.

She and her family used to live in Oaxaca.

Feeling the ground shake is common there.

"I've been through them too, but not that big," said Garcia.

Her mother, Eugenia, tried calling family members there. At first, she says an operator told her lines were busy and she may not get through. But after several minutes, she was connected.

"They said they were fine, everything was okay," said Garcia.
