Augusta goes ‘Back to the Future,’ changing name to ‘Hill Valley’

I cannot say I know, completely, what’s going on here.

From the article I think the town, of the I/me generation, has been inundated (read brainwashed) with the idea that they should memorialize the film Back to the Future.

Now, I haven’t seen the film. Not even once. Nor read a book about the movie, nor paid much attention to the conversations about me about the film – although I do remember a comment about it between two flight instructors and a counter girl.

I was busy.

Still, Augusta Ks is a town more tall, North and South, than it is wide and businesses fail there right and left. Admittedly, I don’t drive through the town north and south very often (like twice in the past thirty years or so), but the highway does go through the town and things keep changing.

I’m not sure, either, that the nine percent sales tax helps the place, or the restrictive code along the paving brick main road help at all (they won’t allow trees to be planted in front of businesses).

That tree business bothers me, however, as much as anything else. But it is understandable, hat with an old timmey brick road – red brick, thank you. The yellow brick road has been moved north of town some miles. (Hyw 54)

Augusta does have an airport, a couple of museums; Wally World has built a new building on the west of town along the Walnut River, just under the dike, beside the Hwy.

Anyhow, the link is:  http://www.butlercountytimesgazette.com/article/20150630/NEWS/150639974/1994/NEWS

In case you want to honor a movie.

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
