Williams Lake strippers shut down

January 24, 2011

Only one story in today’s northern B.C. roundup. But it features strippers, so it counts twice.

According to this unbylined article in the Williams Lake Tribune, two single mothers who own a Williams Lake strip joint say their business may not reopen after being forced to close down for 26 days for a variety of infractions, including allowing contact between customer and stripper and letting drunks stick around.

I like business stories that are actual stories not fluff pieces.

On a semi-related note, and to fill some space: I don’t like the following paragraph construction in community papers:

“Mike Jones is a local firefighter whose parents died in a horrendous fire 10 years ago. He thinks people shouldn’t smoke in bed.”

The X is Y introduction is awkward in a newspaper article. It’s fine in some magazine pieces, and is a common construct on TV. But it’s weird in a newspaper, which is why you don’t see it often. (I just made up this paragraph.)

A better sentence (in my opinion): “Mike Jones, a local firefighter whose parents died in a horrendous fire 10 years ago, thinks people shouldn’t smoke in bed.”
