BEETON - Police are looking for the driver of a pickup truck they say drove into a Beeton-area sod field early this morning, causing over $20,000 in damage.
Nottawasaga OPP were notified about a red pickup truck driving erratically throughout Beeton around 3:40 a.m. April 17.
Police also received calls from several Beeton residents, complaining someone had driven circles on their front lawns, causing various damage.
Police said the vehicle was traveling on the 10th Sideroad when it veered into the sod field.
The truck also reportedly drove through some farm properties on the 20th Sideroad.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this driver is asked to call police at 705-434-1939.
CLEARWATER - Despite threatening clouds and constant rain, juniors and seniors from Countryside High School were all smiles Thursday morning as they unloaded off a big yellow school bus near the Feather Sound Country Club.
Outfitted in water shoes, swim trunks and plastic ponchos, the 25 students from Susan Curnutte’s marine science class planted salt marsh grasses grown in class along the trash-strewn shoreline hedged by Ulmerton Road. The native grass will help hold sand in place, creating homes for native animals, filtering out trash and creating natural channels for water flow.
“The kids have been growing the grass all year, so they are really looking forward to seeing the fruits of their labor,” Curnutte said. “They love it. It’s a coveted spot to be one of the lucky ones that can afford to miss a day of classes.”
For the project, coordinated by Tampa Bay Watch, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting native wetlands, the students quickly slipped in and out of thick mangroves with bags of grass before heavy rain brought their planting to an end. Environmental scientist Martha Gruber said the group hopes to restore the mosquito ditches near Feather Sound to native wetlands, removing invasive species and replacing them with native plants by the summer.
