A2 Thursday, May 18, 1995 The Salina Journal Salinans want to save city's heritage [ we Deliver Commission calls on residents for help By DAN ENGLAND The Salina Journal During the past couple of years, Salina's growth has exploded. But the city wants to make sure its heritage isn't sacrificed in the name of commerce. So the Salina Heritage Commission is calling on residents to assist it in completing a historic preservation plan for the future. A meeting will be from 2-6 p.m. Friday at the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce, 120 W. Ash. The meeting is free and open to the public. The commission received a grant to update the preservation plan some time ago. "It's been relatively untouched since," said John Burger, associate planner. Burger gives reports to the commission on possible sites for preservation. The city also will meet that day with a professional consultant from Topeka. The meeting will identify sites that could be possibilities for getting on the Kansas or National Register of Historic Places. The house at 100 Mount Barbara, owned by Melissa and Merle "Boo" Hodges, was recently National Register of Historic Places These six Salina sites are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Salina has six properties on the National Register and six are Heritage Conservation Landmarks. One property that has been examined as a possible site would be the Masonic Temple, 336 S. Santa Fe. The city is discussing the possibility with the Masonic trustees. With the input from this meeting, the Heritage Commission hopes to produce a document that could be a plan of attack to preserve more of Salina. "We want to put something out that the layperson could see what activities exist and what may be possible," Burger said. "~ Salina Journal P.O. Box 740, Salina.

Frick convicted again over Flamingo By DAN ENGLAND Tht> Salina Journal Ben Frick has again been found guilty of operating an apartment complex in violation of city zoning regulations. This time, the city, which filed the suit in Municipal Court, hopes the conviction sticks. Frick was convicted Nov. 23 of five counts of operating the Flamingo, 500 E. Pacific, as apartments without proper permits. But that judgment was set aside when the court ruled that Frick had not had a sufficient opportunity to defend himself because prosecutors improperly filed a court document. Frick is a businessman and frequent candidate for public office. He was defeated last fall in his bid for a Saline County Commission "It would be ridiculous for me to speculate when I don't know what the sentence is." — Dick Blackwell attorney seat and this spring lost in the primary for the Salina School Board. He will be sentenced by May 22. Frick could face fines of up to $2,500. The maximum fine on each count is $500. The Flamingo is in an area zoned for commercial use. The zoning allows operation of hotels or motels but not residential apartments. Frick contended that the Flamingo was a motel, but the city contended it was used as apartments and filed suit. Dick Blackwell, Frick's attorney, said he didn't know if the conviction would be appealed. "It would be ridiculous for me to speculate when I don't even know what the sentence is," he said. Frick said he hadn't learned of the verdict and didn't know if he would appeal. We Service All Makes of Sewing Machines and Vacuums Midwest Sewing & Vacuum 340 S.
