Reliving history: Employees watch as Patrick Shimon, area general manager of Red Lion Hotel at the Park, splashes into the hotel’s updated pool Thursday in Spokane. Shimon was recreating a scene from 1983 when the hotel general manager, on a bet, opened the original pool with a trip down the slide. The new version features a 28-foot water slide, a waterfall and new landscaping. Shimon’s reading glasses were swept off his face and sank to the bottom of the pool.
