Fun fact, in the early 2000s when they were planning on building a soccer complex on the north side of town, I was the one that delivered the letter to the city manager that officially killed it.

My mom spotted this on I-135 by Lindsborg. Looks like it’s going in the LJS building. She also thinks Taco Grande got bought & they might be rebranding them all to this.

That looks good.

My grandma (rest her soul) loved LJS. We would pick her up from Kenwood View Nursing Home and take her to LJS. One  of her few joys in life.

Growing up as a kid from KC I always thought of Salina as just another truck stop town on I-70 halfway between the cat ranch/home....we always stopped at the Petro 2 on the way there and back.

Wasn't until I went to a wedding there right after college that I realized there is a whole 50k town that you don't see right off the interstate.

Also Salina is firmly central KS. Western KS starts around Hays where the smoky hills end. If you have to worry about cedars taking over your pasture you are not in western KS.

No question, Salina is central KS.

Artsy-fartsy features around the Ohio St viaduct over the railroad tracks really gets people stirred up, as well.

Sounds like Salina has some family offshoots from the Manhattan "what do we need that for" townies

I can't imagine the Townie takes on Kimball Ave.

the old LJS building has some activity lately. Hopefully it will be coming down!
