Missouri Route 66 Fan Creates Directory for Historic Businesses

Brentwood, Missouri - July 19, 2010 - Carolyn Hasenfratz, a fan of historic Route 66 and a member of the Route 66 Association of Missouri (W) and Friends of the Mother Road (W), began a web site in 2002 called John's Modern Cabins News ( The original purpose of the site was to get the word out about an historic Route 66 site in Missouri that was endangered. After the immediate crisis with John's Modern Cabins had passed, Ms. Hasenfratz expanded the scope of the web site to get the word out about preservation projects and to encourage historic preservation on all parts of Route 66.

To meet this goal, the John's Modern Cabins News web site contains preservation news, suggested actions, opinions, a promotion directory and a free directory for historic business on Route 66. Directory listings may include a photo and a link to the businesses' web site. Ms. Hasenfratz offers this service free of charge because she believes that one of the best ways to preserve the heritage of Route 66 for the future is to keep historic businesses vital and open.

Ms. Hasenfratz has recently installed an online form using technology provided by her employer Webinar Resources of Normandy, Missouri, to make it easier for business owners to submit their information to the directory. Historic businesses on Route 66 who want to be listed in the directory are invited to go to and use the online form provided, or if they prefer, download a printable form and mail it in.

At the movie's conclusion, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) states: "We've had life for a billion years. Now we know what to do with it." What does she think we should do with our lives? Presumably we should be able to stare at a gun and watch the bullets fall out harmlessly to the ground; look at a bunch of gangsters pointing AK-47s at us and have them drop their pieces and fly to the ceiling flaying impotently' conjure up dinosaurs and disappear just as they are about to gobble you up; and drive effortlessly down a one-way highway while watching cars pile up helplessly. In other words, while you may think that Lucy, who is steadily able to raise the capacity of her brain from the usual, human 10% to 100%, will be able to solve a Rubik Cube in 15 seconds, complete a New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle in indelible ink, or memorize 154 theorems in minutes without ever taking high-school geometry, Lucy's brain is completely different. Sure, she probably could learn to speak French with a Montréal accent if she should get the strange notion to do so, but writer-director Luc Besson has other plans for this brainiac. She has the powers of a superhero: she can exercise telekinesis by moving objects and people from one place to another by simply willing it, can take a quick look at the unspoiled U.S. when Native Americans ruled the land, and touch the forehead of a famous scientist to discover that his six-year-old daughter had died in an auto accident. What's more she can look at an X-ray of a person on an operating table, discern that he has advanced, incurable cancer, and shoot the poor fellow because "he could not possibly survive anyway."
