Is There BBQ In Haysville’s Future?

Is There BBQ In Haysvilles Future? Judging by this picture I would guess yes. The old Pizza Hut building on North Main has been showing signs of activity lately along with an R&S BBQ truck in the parking lot which may be a clue to Haysvilles next restaurant.
There has been BBQ in Haysvilles past. If youve been around Haysville a while you might recall Busters BBQ on East Grand.

Local Paper Changes Hands

Johnna Crawford who last year started publishing the Haysville Sun, purchased the Haysville Times and formed the Sun-Times has sold “most of the assets” of the paper to Marc Campbell who is also the owner of Haysvilles True Value. According to Johnna “Nothing will change but my use of control.”
So what does that mean? I guess youll have to continue reading the Sun-Times to find out.

Family Video to Open Doors

By Cathy Loffland
The Haysville Times

Haysville is getting a new video store in town. Depending on how soon they can get the shelves stocked, they either will be open by the time this goes to print or will open today.
Family Video chose Haysville because Haysville is a good family town. Family Video likes to build where families can walk to the store and kids can ride their bikes there.
The demographics they look for when they search for land to purchase is a neighborhood near homes rather than a main business street.
Family Video is owned by one family, and that is where the name comes from.
There are 470 Family Video Stores in 15 different states, and there are four new stores opening this week. This will make the 12th store in Kansas. Family Video was the first video store in America, opened in 1978.
A couple of things that set Family Video apart from the other video stores is that Family video owns the land that the store is sitting on, according to Levin Dinkla, Regional Manager.
All the employees at the Haysville Family Video live in the Haysville area. There are eight employees now, and the Store Manager is April Mitchell.
Memberships are free, and for the first 30 days, you can rent new releases for half price. You will find Family Video at 521 W. Grand, and they can be reached at 522-3670. Their hours are 10 am to midnight, seven days a week.
