NORA SPRINGS, IOWA – Pole Barn owner Dale Peterson has pleaded not guilty to a liquor violation.

Nora Springs police wrote Dale Owen Peterson of Minnesota a ticket for violation of Iowa code 123.46, section 2, for an alleged violation back on March 10 at his juice bar in Nora Springs. According to that law, “A person shall not use or consume alcoholic liquor, wine, or beer upon the public streets or highways. A person shall not use or consume alcoholic liquor in any public place except premises covered by a liquor control license.” This is a misdemeanor violation.

On March 25 in court, Mr. Peterson pleaded not guilty and will face a non-jury trial on May 6.

Sources tell NIT that “witnesses (saw) the girl purchasing the alcohol in Casey’s and then taking the alcohol into the business. Dale also admitted to the police that it was inside and the girls were going to drink it later.”

However, Mr. Peterson told NIT that police claim a young lady “brought a bottle of liquor” inside The Pole Barn, an adult-themed “performing arts theatre” that most people just call a juice bar. Beer and wine are allowed inside, but hard liquor is not allowed. He says “they never found the bottle” of booze.

“I never saw it, and we check everyone that comes in,” he explained. “They (the police) claim she had it, but it was never found.”

Also, Mr. Peterson told NIT that he was banned from the Mason City YMCA. He had been going there to use the facility and shower and clean up.

“They told me not to come in, due to my conviction as a sex offender,” Mr. Peterson said.

Mason City YMCA Executive Director Liz Conley did not respond to a phone message left by NIT, asking about their policies toward sex offenders in general and how they found out that Mr. Peterson was using the facility.

    Again, we don’t have pros and cons discussed here, just bullying and intimidation abuse. This is what NIT is, a forum for small minded bullies to shout at and browbeat ANYONE who doesn’t fit within their community norms. It’s a place where haters hate and ventilate, anonymously, while taking pot shots at real human individuals.

    Take ur trash to Waterloo they like that shit there !!!!! Mr. Dale probably cant afford to compete with the Skanks there. Why would a person waste $ trying to get rich off Nora Springs Iowa?? Definately not the smartest move, but from Petersons track record he isnt the sharpest tool in the shed, and repeatedly keeps wasting money in his FLOP of a business ventures. GO somewhere BIg any smart person knows thats the best route, not a dinky ass town!!!!! Numerous times a flop !!! Smh Obviously its time to shit or get off the pot Dale!! Hang it Up or do somethin worth doing!!!!!

      Before you go posting comments about how someone ‘isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed’, you might want to make sure your spell check is working. Calling someone stupid while spelling words incorrectly makes you look, well, stupid.

    Hello, I am a performer at the PBT. Dale was actually kicked out of the Y for having a four way there with myself and his two bouncers. It was sex in both locker rooms, the pool, the sauna, in the gym, everywhere. The sinning went on for hours, they begged us to stop, but we didn’t listen. I think the final straw was when Dale did a pressed ham against one of the front windows, at that point they seemed like they had enough. They told Dale that he needed to leave and not return. They allowed myself and the two bouncers to stay as we had been forced into this by Dale and it was not our fault. Dale has an Earnest Hemmingway costume he says he will use to sneak back in.

      A naked jumping jack never hurt nobody. The only thing ever harmed was all that flappy lilly white old man skin that was endlessly pummeled as some 86-yr-old anglo-saxon lunatic breathlessly performed this feat for all the world to see. Anyway, it’s dam re-assuring to see the Y staff profiling the sex offenders and booting them out, even if they did nothing wrong. I’m sure Jesus would approve of banning humans from this place or that. I’m sure Jesus would approve of the Y raising their rates as often as possible too. Gotta make that money.

          I was in there a week or two ago, got within 20 feet of the men’s locker room, and the smell was god-awful. I didn’t dare go inside, but I coulda swore I heard moaning in there, along with the soft pitter-patter of a fully nude 96-year-old George Washington look-alike gazing intensely into a full-length mirror, leaping 4 centimeters off the tile floor as his withered mitts clapped above his cranium. Like you say, better to dress at home on the way in and after your workout to save your brain from comprehending that scene.

        Apparently u missed the rest of the story..the little boy did not witness anaked jumping jack..2 of the perves were doing each other..that is the point here. I am sure Jesus took the side of the child.
