From the Route 66 News site.
JANUARY 25-- Mahan Gas Station was moved from Shea's in Springfield, Illinois, a quarter mile north to Fulgenza's Pizza and Pasta. Looks like we'll have anew place to stop in Springfield.
JANUARY 26-- The ten-year-old "Cars" movie still draws tourists to Route 66. I was very disappointed when I found out it was an animated movie, but it sure worked for me. I saw it three times when it came out, once at a drive-in movie theater in McHenry, Illinois. And I have been watching animated movies ever since.
JANUARY 26-- The old Dairy Queen sign in Holbrook, Arizona, is endangered. It is 50 years old and the owners want to replace it with a modern one. As of Feb. 4, it was announced it will stay. Great news. keep anything old that looks good.
JANUARY 28-- Laurel Kane of Afton Station in Afton, Oklahoma, died. She was one of the people that make Route 66 so special. We'll miss her.
JANUARY 29-- Chicago's Jackson Boulevard Bridge marks its 100th birthday. A really pretty bridge.
