BarrieToday community editor Raymond Bowe writes about a brazen theft that happened just outside the city limits and how what may seem like petty crimes can quickly turn tragic. Such was the case in August 2007 when Midhurst resident Rob Plunkett, a 43-year-old detective constable with York Regional Police, was killed while trying to arrest a suspect involved in a string of air-bag thefts in Markham. Raymond was assigned to cover the sombre news conference that day down in York Region as a crime reporter. Plunkett, who was heavily involved in Special Olympics, left behind a wife and three children.

In this week's People of Collingwood feature, we speak with Michael Treuman, land steward with the Blue Mountains Bruce Trail Club and actor.
