Charlottesville police say they’re making progress in their quest to figure out what happened to Hannah Graham.  After more than 400 tips came in from the public, they said she was seen with a 32-year-old man and may have gotten into his car – a vehicle they searched and impounded.  They also located the man and searched his apartment but have not charged him with anything.  Meanwhile, university police belatedly reported two possible rapes near campus after Hannah Graham went missing.

Keeping Virginia Bees Buzzing

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services reports nearly one third of Virginia’s honey bee colonies died last winter.  But one Floyd County beekeeper had a better survival rate.
