Channel 4 News and plagerism

Channel 4 News recently aired the story about Pano's Restaurant cutting hours on the overnights. They unfortunately do not have the story posted on their site anymore, but WNY Media Network posted the story here: , on their sitre before Channel 4 could delete it from history saying:

From Channel 4's Web site:

A late night dining tradition along Buffalo's Elmwood strip may soon be coming to an end.

News 4 has learned the owner of Pano's Restaurant is considering scaling back his hours.

The restaurant opened on the first day of the Blizzard of '77.
Since then, it has been open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

There's no word yet on why the owner is considering cutting the restaurant's hours.



Note in the edit history ( ) of the Wikinews article here: that the Wikinews article was published on the 21 of August, one day prior to the Channel 4 story.

Note the quotes about the blizzard of 77:

Wikinews: Pano's opened in 1977 on the day of the blizzard of '77' and has "remained open for 24 hours since then", only closing for an hour at a time on the weekends to clean up and prepare the restaurant for breakfast, said Georgiadis.



Channel 4 according to WNY Media: The restaurant opened on the first day of the Blizzard of '77. Since then, it has been open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.



Also note that an e-mail was sent to Channel 4 alerting them to the story on Wikinews, but the e-mail did NOT mention any piece of the article and had a link to the copyright rules in reprinting or airing material used from Wikinews articles. They failed to cite Wikinews as a source or original author.

Plagerism is illegal.

Elmwood Village Gatekeepers launch site

The "Elmwood Village Gatekeepers" have launched a new website for their Request for Proposals on the corner of Elmwood and Forest. You can go to the home page here and look on the left of the page to download a printable version of the RFP.

Request For Proposal
Elmwood Village Gateway and
Greenspace

Elmwood Village Gatekeepers
Responses requested by: September 1, 2006
Submissions requested by: October 1, 2006

Objective of this RFP:

The intersection of Elmwood and Forest Avenues is the prominent entrance or "Gateway" to what is possibly Buffalo's most well known, signature neighborhood, The Elmwood Village.

Assets on the southeast corner of Elmwood and Forest include an elevated green space and five turn of the century historic homes. At the northwest corner of Elmwood and Forest is the "Elmwood Forest" a historic green space containing stands of mature pines, other trees and lawn. An all too rare and precious feature in an urban landscape, and part of the historic Olmsted vision for planning the City of Buffalo.

We advocate re-use and renovation of the existing structures and green space presently on these historic sites to create a unique, uplifting and imaginative entranceway to Buffalo's signature Elmwood Village.

We are seeking conceptual schematics which will:

> Preserve, enhance and re-use the existing five historic homes at the southeast corner of Elmwood and Forest.

> Preserve, unify and highlight the unique elevated green space and
lawns at the southeast corner of Elmwood and Forest, and make them accessible as a public "commons."

> Create a unified view of the unique greenspace at the southeast corner of Elmwood and Forest to reflect the "Elmwood Forest" at the northwest corner of Elmwood, and Forest honoring Olmsted's vision of green ways throughout Buffalo.

For information please email: rfp@elmwoodvillage.net

Panos restaurant ending overnight shift

After nearly thirty years, Pano's Restaurant at 1081 Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo, New York will end a tradition of being open 24 hours a day, seven days a week by ending its overnight foodservice.

The tradition for Buffalonians, who are able to enjoy drinks at the bars and clubs until 4:00 a.m. will end sometime at the end of August or September, according to overnight manager Wendi Dittmar and resturant accountant Roseanne Jones.

"We will be starting the closure of the overnight shift sometime in the next 2 weeks to a month," said Dittmar in an exclusive interview with Wikinews.

Jones told Wikinews that owner Pano Georgiadis is "just fed up" with the "destruction, the walk-outs of bills and fights that the 'drunk' people cause" to his resturant.

Pano's opened in 1977 on the day of the blizzard of '77' and has "remained open for 24 hours since then", only closing for an hour at a time on the weekends to clean up and prepare the restaurant for breakfast, said Georgiadis.

Artvoice who holds the "Best of Buffalo" competition every year where readers vote for their favorite Buffalo place, has listed Pano's as the Best of Buffalo for best brunch, best Greek restaurant, best patio and best super-cheap breakfasts for 2006.

Georgiadis is expected to make several radio announcements within the next few weeks.
