News From Along Route 66-- March

MARCH 13TH--  Missouri State University is developing a mobile archive on Missouri's Route 66 motels.  And, I'm sure that would include my favorite, the Munger-Moss in Lebanon as well as the Wagon Wheel in Cuba and I sure would like to get a stay at the Boots Motel in Carthage.

MARCH 14TH--  Lebanon may rename Elm Street as Route 66.  Something I'd sure like to see.  What would you rather have, a 66 or an Elm?

MARCH 16TH--  Hundreds turn out for the Gary Turner memorial at Gay Parita Sinclair station west of Halltown, Missouri.  He was one special person, one who made the old road so much of a great place.  He'll be missed.

MARCH 18TH--  The Mill in Lincoln, Illinois, is having an online campaign to help finish its restoration.  They've come a long way from when we first saw it in 2002.  Hopefully it will be completed.

MARCH 20TH--  Albuquerque approved condotel plan for the old De Anza Motor Lodge.  If you can't save it as is, I'm always in favor of alternate use.
