Crane obstructs view

To paraphrase President Ronald Reagan: “Mr. Singla, please take down that crane!”

On July 9, Penticton had quite the natural light show. The most lightning I’ve seen here for several years indeed. Also I saw a beautiful double rainbow. Awesome it was.

I was attempting to take some photos, and it wasn’t worth the effort. Why? I’ll paraphrase President Ronald Reagan: “Mr. Singla, please take down that crane!”

It’s been years that it has swung in the breeze and it is an eyesore, and it’s getting embarrassing telling repeat visitors that the city is not acting on this issue, as it has promised to do for too many years. I’m sure many Pentictonites are eager to see a view, as well as sending photos to others, sans crane. Not to mention all the visitors that take photos. Down it must come, please.
