News Along 66, May 2017: Murals, Tornadoes and Women on 66

MAY 16--  There are five new murals in Miami, Oklahoma and the public was invited to do some of the painting.  I was not real impressed with the murals that I saw.

MAY 17--  One person killed and much damage from a tornado in Elk City, Oklahoma.  It seems that tornadoes have a particular fondness for Route 66 towns.  Also snow and thunderstorms.

MAY 17--  Missouri State University in Springfield got a grant of $2,500 for its "Women on the Mother Road in Missouri.  This is collecting oral histories and a picture of Ramona of the Munger-Moss accompanied the article.

Love That Ramona.  --RoadDog
