MAY 6-- Devil's Elbow residents determined to rebuild. Good for them. Much too pretty an area to abandon.
MAY 7-- Route 66 visitors center in Bloomington, Illinois, sees a fifty percent increase in attendance to 27,173 with its Cruisin' With Lincoln on 66.
They have come from 50 countries and 45 states.
They estimate that this increase in visitation brings $861,155 in spending to the community.
It is sure nice that Bloomington and Normal have FINALLY figured out that they should do something with their Route 66 heritage.
