Good News spreads fast it seems, with our notes of some provincial funding for Prince Rupert's 333 Recovery Home from Friday making for our most read item of the week.

The local Recovery facility which has gained much applause for its work in the community, will be part of a five city pilot project towards
recovery supports.

Among the other stories of the week to catch the eye of the reader.  

Our look at some renovations to the interior look of Acropolis Manor also gained a large audience with Northern Health and the Prince Rupert Port Authority teaming up to bring some new features to the facility.

The Skeena River has been the focus for many tis week, as an accelerated snow pack melt quickly raised the Skeena and Bulkley Rivers to flood warning status.

Natural events of fire version also had an impact on the Northwest, with a Wild Fire in the Cariboo resulting in some service issues for Prince Rupert based  CityWest.

And the Air Ambulance service is set for a change, with a Vancouver Island Helicopter service set to take charge of the Air Ambulance work across much of BC.
