It is the 13th day of December. There are only a few shopping days left until Christmas. Have you considered gift shopping at Savon Bath Treats​ in Kingman or Savon Bath Treats Bullhead City?

Pontiac, Illinois makes for another excellent comparative study. An almost continuous rise in sales tax revenues over the course of the past several years, transformation of the historic business district from blighted and empty to a dynamic destination, and new construction of commercial properties are resultant of a visionary plan that links tourism with sustainable economic development and progressive policies.

As discussions about the airport industrial park continue to be almost daily news stories, I propose a comparative study. Note that the economic development focus in Cuba, Missouri has four linked components - manufacturing, construction, tourism, and forestry.

The recently published journal for the Canadian Route 66 Association includes a feature article about the Miles of Possibility Conference in Joliet, Illinois and the presentation on Kingman area tourism made by author Jim Hinckley. As noted in the article, Hinckley emphasized the renaissance of the historic district and referenced numerous businesses including Black Bridge Brewery, Rickety Cricket Brewing, Floyd and Company Real Pit BBQ, Diana's Cellar Door Wine Bar, Southwest Trading Co., as well as the developments at Grand Canyon Caverns & Inn, the mural and neon sign projects initiated by the Route 66 Association of Kingman. Hinckley's trip to the conference was made possible through the Jim Hinckley's America crowdfunding initiative, and sponsorship from the Route 66 Association of Kingman, Scott McCoy, owner of the Gold Doctor, and Steve LeSueur of MyMarketing Designs. Hinckley has tentatively agreed to speak on tourism and economic development at the 2018 Miles of Possibility Conference in Carlinville, Illinois and the Route 66 International Festival in Shamrock, Texas, and about Route 66 in the southwest at the European Route 66 Festival in Zlin, Czech Republic. #jimhinckley Timothy Blake Schritter Diana Caldon Scott Dunton Sr. Jamie Marie Jamie Scott Stehly Kingman City Council Travis Lingenfelter

To add some context to the discussion about construction of an arch to welcome visitors to Kingman, and the ever increasing estimate of cost, here is how other Route 66 communities addressed the issue. (thank you Rhys Martin for the Tulsa photo)
