Health Center _ Behavioral Health Take back your life. 452-7000 • www.srhc.com Longer hike, bike trail proposed By NATE JENKINS Tlie Salina Journal After the Salina Parks and Recreation Advisory Board graciously dismissed Richard Strange's- proposal, at least for now, to put plans for a new bike trail into high gear, one might think Strange would be perturbed — at least a little. After all. Strange and his friend, Sandra Branda, both of Salina, had obviously spent considerable time drafting a detailed plan to add 9 miles to the current hiking and biking trail in Salina that extends more than 2 mUes, The trail, implemented several years ago, is atop the flood-control levee from Bill Burke Park to Magnolia Road. But instead of being upset, Strange and Branda gleaned a small sense of accomplishment from the proposal that even they agreed had a cost estimate significantly below probable costs for such a project. "We just really wanted to get them thinking about it," said Strange, who says further development of the top of the levee should be a goal of the city "We want to get it off the back burner and to the front burner." Steve Snyder, director of parks and recreation, said a project to extend the trail is identified in the city's long-term capital improvement program. Money is already budgeted for many of those projects, and, there is a clear plan for when they will come to fruition. But extending the trail is not among those projects.' Although it is identified as a possible future project, there is neither a time line for when it will occur nor a funding source. Strange estimated the' cost of extending the trail at about $30,000, a figure far below the more than $280,000 spent to build the existing traU. "I may be way off base," Strange said of his estimate. "This is just a start." He proposed the city seek federal grant money to fund the project. The city has applied for a grant to fund construction of a bicycle and walking trail adjacent to a section of South Ninth Street. City Manager Dennis Kissinger noted after the meeting that people can bike or walk on aU sections of the levee, even those that don't have an improved surface. Board member Kristin Seaton, who also is Salina's new mayor, said after the meeting that Strange's presentation could spur at least a closer look at funding possibilities for the traU. extension. "I think it's a good idea, and that maybe he's got the ball rolling," Seaton said. "I got the feeling from the people there they would like to take a look"at funding." T AFTER PROM 15th annual Safe After-Prom party ready to go By The Salina Journal Three-and-a-half hours of free food, prizes and entertainment should be enough to attract around 900 high school students after their proms this weekend.

Capitol Federal Savings The Case SAUNA PUBLIC LIBBARy of the Dancing Cowboy All Is Well By John R. Erickson / Copyright 1997 John R. Erickson That's about all there is to this yam. Slim and Viola went to the dance (I went too, in the back of the pickup) and we had ourselves a grand old time. Dancing in the front yard. Slim looked pretty... How can 1 say this? He looked a wee bit awkward and uncomfortable, but Viola told him that he danced as well as "Freddy Stair," whoever that might be. And you know what? I think he believed her, and after that he didn't seem to care that he looked like a dancing scarecrow. Happy ending and case cl... Oh, you're probably wondering what became of the sardines. No problem. I took care of that whilest Slim was taking his bath. I, uh, downloaded the material, so to speak, in a very private, secluded, unexplored region of lus...uh...house. Under his bed, you might say. And it worked out fine for everyone. That happened a month ago and Slim hasn't found it yet. Although I've heard him say that he's— i had a lot of \v Chapter sponsor dreams about ^ " ' fishing. Happy ending. Case closed. And anyway, it served him right for making Miss Viola cry. Thank you for joining Hank and I in this adventure! "Case of the Dancing Cowboy" will publish again this summer for your reading pleasure.
