John and Lucy Coppinger have ten great grandchildren to enjoy. John Coppinger says his hob- bies are hunting and cutting bee trees. "Why, I guess I have cut near 400 to 500 bee trees, 'cause I've been cutting them ever since I was a kld,'John said. "Bee trees are easy to find," John said with a warm smile, "I just watch the places where bees get water or sometimes I see the bees working in a sweet- pea field, all I do is watch the course the bees take when they fly away from the waterhole or the field of sweetpeas and Ifol- low the bees back to the tree." "Then I saw the tree down and get the bees and honey. I take the bees home and put them in a bee hive. Sometimes the bees don't like their new home and they will leave and swarm back out of the hive, but I al- ways go get them and bring them back." "Bees don*t sting me much and even when they do, It doesn't John and Lucy Coppinger were by the Journal Office to pay their subscription before the August 3 price increase.
