Bees are said to be responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat. The Aggie horticulture website states, “Forget about honey, pollen and royal jelly. Just think of a world without beans, tomatoes, onions and carrots, not to mention the hundreds of other vegetables, oilseeds and fruits that are dependent upon bees for pollination. And the livestock that are dependent upon bee-pollinated forage plants, such as clover.”

With a starting MSRP of $22,140, Kia’s popular midsize sedan enters 2016 with an all-new look. The 2016 Optima is stylishly designed with exterior dimensions that are marginally longer, taller and wider. The wheelbase has been extended to 110.4 inches (increased 0.4 inches) and the vehicle has been widened to 73.2 inches (increased 1.2 inches). Both changes enable a comfortable cabin with more shoulder room and rear seat legroom.
