    From the Buffalo News:

    Construction on the Maid of the Mist’s new boat dock and storage facility in the Niagara Gorge went on in the rain Monday, while the fight to halt the work is continuing in court.

    The Niagara Preservation Coalition has asked the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court to issue an injunction to stop the work on the $32?million project because items it describes as “significant historic building remnants” were recently photographed being removed from the site.

    The group also says the New York Power Authority has not followed its own guidelines for how to proceed when “unanticipated” items are found.

    Canadian park sues SeaWorld to keep killer whale

    From the Orlando Sentinel:

    The Canadian theme park Marineland has sued SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment in U.S. court, in the latest chapter of an international custody battle over a killer whale.

    In its lawsuit, filed last week in Orlando, Marineland asks a federal court judge to issue an injunction that would prevent SeaWorld from retaking possession of an 8-year-old killer whale that SeaWorld loaned to Marineland five years ago.

    Marineland says SeaWorld executives repeatedly assured it that the loan would extend for so long as Marineland was able to care for the whale, which is named “Ikaika” but nicknamed “Ike.” The park, located in Niagara Falls, Ontario, also says the purpose of the loan was to allow Ikaika to breed with Marineland’s only other killer whale, a female named Kiska, and that Ikaika became capable of mating only late last year.

    Marineland suggests that SeaWorld wants to end the agreement now because one of its few other breeding-age males — a 12-year-old killer whale named Sumar — died last year at SeaWorld San Diego.
