One employer that does know how much it will cost to meet the new wage rates is the Salina Family YMCA. Philip Curies, executive director of the nonprofit organization at 570 YMCA Drive, said about 30 of the organization's 150 employees are paid $4.25 an hour. Curies said the organization's payroll will grow by $20,000 to $820,000 because of the new wage law, and that an extra $50,000 will be added on by next September. "We had to increase our membership fee in order to finance the gap created in our funds because of the (the new minimum wage)," Curies said. "We won't lay off any workers, but we'll take a financial beating." County Seat, a Dallas-based clothing chain with a store at Central Mall, pays two of its workers minimum wage and is considering paying all seven employees more. Store manager Todd Funk said he brought up the issue at a meet- T BROADCASTING AWARDS .Houser returns to KABI .J"' ABILENE — Gary Houser has , returned to the Abilene radio sta- j&bn KABI 1560 AM, where he will Jftost the morning show.

"Some of my workers have fought their way up from $4.25 to $6-$7 an hour, and now that gain will be erased in a single move," Funk said. Sara Hagelie, a County Seat human resources official, said the company plans to hike wages for some employees in the lower wage-tier to make it "fairer for those who have been with us for a while." Some economists worry that increasing the minimum wage will lead companies to cut costs by laying off workers. "What the increase gives to some low-income earners, it takes from others," said Boyd at Kansas Wesleyan. "There have been layoffs every time the minimum wage has been changed." But Dreiling, who has followed wage trends in Salina for the past 25 years, said there's not enough data to support that theory. In examining the past nine increases in minimum wage, he said, neither inflation nor job creation was affected. "Workers have to have this increase in order to maintain their buying power," he said. These are the permits issued recently by the Salina Permits and Inspection Department and the Saline County Planning and Zoning Department. SALINA Commercial — 138 S.

We couldn't think of anything either. The proposed acquisition of Boatmen's by NationsBank will cause more thanjust sign changes. Decisions that impact our community, local businesses, and you will be made by leadership that is halfway across the country. But change can also be a good thing, and if you are a Boatmen's or Bank IV customer, now is the time to consider it. You see, for most of the century, UMB Bank has helped people in this part of the country prosper. We approach your business, whether it is commercial, personal or trust, with the values of an organization that has strong roots here. Not just branches. So, if you want service from people you know, a business decision from someone you have actually met and the rock-solid stability of a bank that is not for sale, then we invite you to make a change for the better. Change to UMB. BANK America's Strongest Banks MEMBER FDIC
