Two more monkey sightings reported in Hillsborough

TAMPA — Two monkey sightings were reported Friday morning in northwest Hillsborough a couple of hours apart.

It's not clear if the same monkey was seen twice or if this is the same monkey that eluded officials last week, said Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Vida Morgan.

The first sighting was at 13444 Bellingham Drive at 7:50 a.m., Morgan said. A resident told Sheriff's Office dispatchers that a monkey was sitting on his back porch.

About 10:15 a.m., someone else reported seeing a monkey at 11700 Cypress Nook, about 2 miles away.

Florida Fish and Wildlife officials were notified but did not investigate.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The city has put the legal fallout from the sewage crisis behind it.

    Signs at North Shore Park in St. Petersburg warn people in September to stay out of the water due to contamination from partially treated sewage from the city's overwhelmed sewer system in September 2016. The city recently learned that no employees will face charges as a result of that crisis. The St. Petersburg City Council also agreed to spend $326 million fixing its sewer system.

These yield signs seem to be pointing to the drivers, one side as they exit the interstate northbound, the other as they …
