Ripley’s aquarium in Toronto taking shape with construction of the concrete shark tank floor

(The Star 3-13-2012) The concrete floor of what will be Toronto’s biggest fish tank, in the city’s first tourist attraction in two decades, is down. Now we wait for sharks. Construction crews at the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada site south of the CN Tower poured the massive, 40-centimetre-thick pad on Saturday. Finishers worked until the wee hours of Sunday, then left the slab to cure for two weeks.

Donation Helps Students Stay Safe

(Co-op News 3-1-2012) Students in a North Dakota school district now have a safe place to walk and bike to class, thanks to a Minnesota G&T. A donation from a G&T helped a North Dakota town repair sidewalks near a K-12 school.   Great River Energy, Maple Grove, donated more than 1,300 tons of fly ash to the city of Washburn for repair and construction of sidewalks and trails, some of them located near its K-12 school.
