300-acre north expansion as “one of the biggest conversation pieces in Oregon.”

Pearson North is in the process of being restored to its natural state as a swamp woods and open wetland by the Columbus-based Ohio Wetlands Foundation.

Pearson North, acquired in 2001, is beginning to show positive signs of becoming a wetland capable of attracting natural habitat, says OWF President Vincent E. Messerley.

Messerley said the oasis of trees, water and meadow provided by the area will be a natural stopover for birds, and meadows with wildflowers will provide important nectaring sources for butterflies and insects.

“We thought it had the highest chance of being a good wetland project to restore the Old Black Swamp and we settled on that,” Messerley said.

Since then, 100,000 trees, shrubs, and bushes have been planted in Pearson North.

“The ratio we used was 600 individual tree seedlings per acre and 100 shrubs per acre,” Messerley said. “We tried very hard to use native seed material from this area, or from Michigan or Indiana, and stay within this climate as much as possible.”

 
Two injury accidents on I-75

Two injury accidents occurred last Tuesday within a 20 minute period and just a half mile from each other on I-75.
 
The Northwood Police and Fire departments responded to the first accident, an injury crash involving seven vehicles at northbound I-75 between Wales Road and Miami Street at 2:12 p.m.
 
A silver Kia traveling north on the inside lane lost control when its tires got caught up in the snow that was along the center median wall, according to police.
 
The Kia, driven by 19-year-old Keith Logue, spun out and was facing south in the northbound lane, which caused a chain reaction leading four more northbound vehicles to crash. An additional vehicle lost control but did not sustain any damage. Another vehicle involved was not identified because it fled the scene, said police.

Trustee Joe Kiss said trustees plan to hire an attorney to seek recovery.
 
Trustees will begin interviewing candidates for legal counsel, he added.
