A western city to avoid (5)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
This clue is a double definition.
'a western city' is the first definition.
(dodge city, kansas is known for the old west)
'avoid' is the second definition.
(dodging is a kind of avoiding)
'to' is the link.
(Other definitions for dodge that I've seen before include "Evade by moving out of the way", "Elude, sidestep", "Step sideways to evade", "Avoid or evade by bodily movement", "Evasion", "Avoid - ruse", "Duck, move to avoid", "Ruse", "A quick evasive movement" and "Evade - trick".)
