Podunk Below the Masthead Wednesday, April 8, 2009

The show doesn't always go on, some movement on the old Acropolis Manor controversy and the 2010 Homecoming preparations are underway, some of the items in the Wednesday edition of the Daily News..

ICE CAPER-- The Ice Capades calls it quits in Williams Lake, pulling their Prince Rupert appearance (as well as the rest of their tour) off the itinerary and leaving their skaters wondering how they will get home, not to mention Prince Rupert residents wondering where the refunds are. The Daily News outlined the details in a front page, headline story.

The ever popular quest to bring back the long lost Rupertites for a visit moves into high gear as the Homecoming committee gets organized. The seven person group is hoping to see a large return of former residents in town from May 20 to 24 in 2010.

The debate over the fate of the old Acropolis Manor continues to percolate, with a number of former and current local politicians throwing their interest behind the quest to keep the building standing and in use for other health requirements in the city.

The Sports page features a review of the success of Zachary and Darian Baker, a pair of local tae kwon do participants heading for the national finals in May in Quebec City. As well as a look back at the Prince Rupert Floor Hockey league season finale which saw the Bobcats declared as league champions. Page eleven features a half page spread of photos about the recent opening of the new Kitimat Aquatic Centre.
