I think this should be updated little more often. Sometimes a news sits there for a year. Either get rid of it, or update it with some "new" news, such as recalculations, who killed shot JR... stuff like that.

How about news from our famous members? I know we don't do interviews anymore, but really... "Site News" is getting old :-\

Site News
6th March
Today, one of our long-standing members FocusPoint asked for the 'site news' section to be updated. He claimed that 'sometimes news sits there for a year' The suggestion is currently with the DPC management, who weren't available for comment.

This just in...

Notwithstanding the fact that the Site News has yet to be updated, some members of DPC have noticed that a request has been made to do just that. A movement is afoot to see if some sort of award can be given to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Focuspoint for bringing this matter to the fore. :O)

I will shoot him.......with my camera of course, if we can get some updated news on the site. I usually report or cover the news for the paper, but I'll be the news one time for the betterment of the site. :D

This just in...a reputable source states that effective immediately DPC will be handing out only "Half Ribbons" due to cutbacks and the austerity program. :O)

A story with possible implications for a future challenge ...

2,500 rubber ducks stolen from Ill. police academy

Mar 25, 5:14 PM (ET)

YORKVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A flotilla of yellow rubber ducks intended for a fund-raising event has been stolen from a police academy in suburban Chicago.

The Beacon-News in Aurora says Friday that some 2,500 ducks took flight this week from the Yorkville Citizens Police Academy.

Police say several of the toy ducks have been found on a Yorkville roadway and request that any more found be returned to the academy.

Police plan to use the toy ducks in their annual "Duck Pluck" to raise funds for the academy.

'Moby-Duck': When 28,800 Bath Toys Are Lost At Sea -- Today's (3/29/11) "Fresh Air" program on NPR.
Originally posted by Program notes:


In 1992, a cargo ship container tumbled into the North Pacific,dumping 28,000 rubber ducks and other bath toys that were headed from China to the U.S. Currents took them, and news reports said some may have eventually reached Maine and other shores on the Atlantic.

Thirteen years later, journalist Donovan Hohn undertook a mission: He wanted to track the movements of the wayward ducks, from the comfort of his own living room.

"I figured I'd interview a few oceanographers, talk to a few beachcombers, read up on ocean currents and Arctic geography and then write an account of the incredible journey of the bath toys lost at sea," he tells Fresh Air's Dave Davies. "And all this I would do, I hoped, without leaving my desk."
