Planners say no to Kwik Shop request By DAN ENGLAND The Salina Journal A cedar facade addition to the Kwik Shop at 657 Fairdale might have to be torn down. The Salina Planning Commission on Tuesday denied, 4-1-1, with one abstention, a request to amend a planned development district zoning by the Kwik Shop at that location. That means the facade that was constructed after it was informed of the zoning will have to be torn down if the Salina City Commission concurs with the planners. This will come before the city commission June 5. The facade addition doesn't meet planned development district standards and is "too bold" for the character of the mostly residential neighborhood, said Roy Dudark, director of planning and development. "This isn't Crawford or South Ninth," Dudark said in reference to developed business areas. "This is too attention-getting." The planned development district was passed by the planning commission in 1978. At that time, said commission member Elizabeth Duckers, the district was put in place to protect the neighborhood from turning into a business complex. Amending the plan would leave the door open for such a complex. "Then we'll have to compromise with the next plan that comes along, and I think this is exactly what they attempted to guard against in 1978," Duckers said. But member Deane Allen said he thought the cedar facade was a "a nice addition." "It didn't turn me off," he said. "I don't think it would deter from the neighborhood." Dusty Moshier, an attorney representing Kwik Shop, said the de- velopment plan was amended to allow for residential development. "The FDD didn't envision the development to occur like it has," Moshier said. "They weren't attempting to circumvent any rules. This has a cleaner appearance." Mike Blevins abstained from voting, saying he was torn between forcing the Kwik Shop to tear it down and complying with the original planned development district. Eric Hardman, chairman, asked Blevins if we would have approved of the facade if it hadn't already been built. "No, I probably wouldn't," Blevins answered. "But I agree with you technically. But practically ... requiring it to come down ... I'm not sure." Pending city commission approval, Kwik Shop would have to wait six months before it comes back with an amendment to its plan to build another facade. "We would hope by then that they tear down their first one," Dudark said. If not, the city can file suit in Municipal Court as a zoning violation. New subdivision OK'd In other business, the commission approved 4-1, with one abstention, the final plat of an application that will allow for a 128-lot subdivision. The Woodland Hills Estates Addition would be located east of' Seitz Drive between Presbyterian Manor and the Country Club Estates Subdivision. The applicant, Landmark Development, has plans for at least some development by December. Commissioner Charles Weathers voted against the project because of traffic on neighborhood roads surrounding the subdivision's site. ^FROM PAGE A1 Salina plans to fight to keep women's tourney Saturday night in either Municipal Auditorium or Kemper Arena. The men's tournament would run under the same format with games Thursday through Sunday. Officials from the Bicentennial Center and Salina Area Chamber of Commerce are waiting to learn the requirements for having the new Big 12 Women's Tournament before starting to work on their proposal. "As of last week, we hadn't received any information at all," said Phil Chamoff, the manager of the Bicentennial Center. "We'd love to see the tournament come back to Salina, but we're waiting to see what the requirements will be." In addition to having the men and women playing in the same city, Big 12 officials may also want the women to play in an arena of 10,000 or more. With women's basketball extremely popular in Texas, the Southwest Conference Tournament has drawn more than 10,000 fans in Dallas for the past couple of years. "We certainly don't want to discount anyone," Hancock said. "But, if we feel we need a facility that seats at least 10,000, that would discount some sites." One of those would be the Salina Bicentennial Center, which seats around 7,000. Although the women's tournament has consistently drawn between 3,000 and 4,500 fans each year for the championship game, only once has it been close to a sellout. That came in 1987 when Kansas and Kansas State played in front of a crowd of 6,200. "The whole thing is money and who will offer the best package," Chamoff said. "The bigger cities probably have more things to offer, but that doesn't mean we're not going to fight to keep (the tourna- ment)." The Kansas City plan will be rec- ', ommended by league officials to , the CEOs. But, it's conditional with the women's tournament. According to a story in Monday's Kansas City Star, in a tour of Municipal Auditorium last week, Big 12 officials found inadequate lockerroom facilities. "The women's basketball coaches are adamant about running a; first-class tournament, and if that happens with two 12-team tournaments in one city, fine," Hancock said. "But, they wouldn't be adverse to moving it somewhere else' if things don't work out." *FROM PAGE A1 Nebraska water laws lag behind Kansas' are scheduled to attend an annual meeting in June in Lincoln, Neb. At that time, Pope said, they will consider changes in the compact rules to prevent the additional pumping of groundwater in areas of the Republican River. Such action would result in a moratorium, similar to the one Kansas has imposed in many regions of the state to prevent further depletion of groundwater and other water supplies. The compact proposal also would require the metering of wells to determine usage. The next step, Pope said, would be for Nebraska to reduce its water allocation, an action that might take a year or two because it would probably involve the passage of stricter state laws to regulate groundwater. Pope said Kansas is far beyond Nebraska in the regulation of water. A natural resources district in the Nebraska region of the Repub- lican River has implemented some restrictions, but there are no limits in the remainder of the state. "They're really struggling with their own lack of state law," Pope said. Among the hard questions Nebraska must answer: To what extent should groundwater be regulated? And who should be responsible for that regulation? Pope said the proposed rules change in the Republican River Compact "has the potential, at least, to take us toward full resolution." "It's really possible to resolve *• FROM PAGE A1 Tornado downs power poles in Gray County County rural firefighters who had responded to a pasture fire call. "The firefighters had their cars parked here, and their windshields all got beat up," a dispatcher said. A Russell fire truck also lost a windshield, she said. There were reports of tornadoes in Lincoln County, but a sheriff's dispatcher said there were no official reports of damage or injuries. A tornado toppled 150 power poles and damaged two trailer homes in Gray County in southwest Kansas, a sheriff's dispatcher said. "We also have had outbuildings on farms that were damaged, some with minor 'damage and some with heavy damage," said the dispatcher. Three people suffered minor injuries, but the dispatcher provided no information on how they were hurt. Hail and wind also broke out windows across the county, she said. The tornado was part of a huge storm system that moved across Kansas Tuesday afternoon and evening, the National Weather Service said. Much of western Kansas was under a tornado watch until 11 p.m., and tornado warnings — where a funnel cloud has been spotted or radar indicates a tornado — were posted in more than a dozen counties through the night. Softball-sized hail pounded parts of Morris County, said Yvonne Jacobs, a sheriff's dispatcher. "We didn't have any injuries but we have damage to houses, win- dows vehicles, pretty much around the county," she said. Hail in Morris County broke windows on cars and homes, the sheriff's department said. Hail broke out skylights and windows at the White City school building in Morris County, which houses kindergarten through high school classes, said Gerald McClure, superintendent. A custodian called McClure to report the damage. "All the skylights were broken out, several windows on the west side were broken out and there is a lot of water pouring into the building," McClure said. Classes were canceled today, and a roofing company has been contacted to look at the damage, McClure said. A funnel cloud tore part of a roof off a house in Lyon County, and in Finney County two trailers were moved off their foundations, sheriffs' dispatchers said.

CORRECTIONS Because of a Journal error, information was incorrect in a story in Tuesday's edition about pleas for a Wichita man accused in a triple-fatality traffic accident. Vincent Lorado Brown faces a maximum sentence of up to 33 years in prison for three counts of involuntary manslaughter. The sentence is not a combination of three consecutive 11 year sentences, as the article said, but a process under sentencing guidelines that consists of doubling the primary sentence and adding time to it for the other criminal counts. Brown was also not on probation from a cocaine charge in Wichita, as the story said. ***** Because of a Journal error, a story in Tuesday's edition incorrectly stated the action taken by the Salina City Commission on next year's budget for the Business Improvement District was incorrect. The commission passed an acknowledgement of receiving the budget. this issue if Nebraska is just will-, ing to do it," he said. Time also is a factor. The first phase of the Arkansas. River case took 10 years to resolve. During the second phase, the court is to decide how much water should' be reallocated to Kansas and whether Colorado owes Kansas ' monetary damages. Water experts, said that could take another few years. "What this week's decision really does is clear the way for more' work to be done," Pope said. Unfinished bridge falls; man missing By The Associated Press CLIFTON, Tenn. — A bridge being built over the Tennessee. River collapsed in a mass of twisted steel Tuesday, sending three workers plunging into the, water. Two survived, but one man- was missing. Divers searched for Bill Robinson, whose safety belt had been attached to the steel structure 100 feet above the water, authorities! said. "There's probably no question he's down in the water with the. steel," said Mike McKinnon, vice president of McKinnon Bridge Co., which is building the 1,000- foot span. A fourth man in a boat near the bridge was injured, as were the two survivors. None of the three, were hurt badly, authorities said. Police Sgt. Bryan Ray said the survivors told him they saw the girders bow. "No more did they spot that happening than there was loud, noise like thunder, the metal started bending and going towards the water," Ray said. '• The $9.9 million bridge was supposed to be finished by this fall. The steel superstructure was being put into place when the acci-. dent happened. Lyle M. Burkhead Lyle died Mar. 31, 1995 in Ft.
