    By Ben Carlson, News staff

    Brian Flood was angry. Just days before the second anniversary of a tractor-trailer slamming into his home on Graefenburg Road in Alton, he was startled from his bed early last Thursday morning when another tractor-trailer hit a large tree in front of his home hard enough to knock the engine from the truck.

    Flood isn’t alone. For years, folks who live on the narrow state highway have had cars and trucks smack into their homes, tear off their porches, hit their trees and force them to sleep with one eye open.

    By Janie Bowen, News staff

    When bees started coming from everywhere Thursday afternoon around the residence of Charlotte Guthrie on Hickory Drive, neighbors started buzzing. Several saw the swarm and came out to check it out.

    “I walked to the door and they were swarming,” said Guthrie. She said they had gathered into what looked to be about the size of a softball. Her daughter, Jean Mansfield, had a doctor’s appointment and couldn’t get to the car.
