I think it was a fortunate turn of events, that you could take a negative situation and make it positive; possibly getting one more person interested in beekeeping. I hope the station doesn't edit out the piece to beyond recoginition. Please keep us informed when/if it will air.
I wouldn't make eye contact with the neighbor. Avoid that situation as best as you can. Get a nanny cam to watch your hives. I've got no problems with that here. The neighbor's kids see me come out and they shriek and run away screaming "its the bee lady". Hmmm, maybe its the dowager's hump.
Ps, I have extra honey if you change your mind.
