I agree with all of you!! Just diverting away from other recent subject matter. Although a local-lifer from Independence pronounced it suh- leen, I always pronounced it Say-lean. An old 1873 State Geological Survey map named it Salinas! There must be Paiute name for it somewhere. Also, I've never opened a dictionary to check!! Hey Hey.
