Doubts arise over history of Galena's Murder Bordello

Its really an unfortunate turn of events but, if not for your efforts, this disagreement might have remained a local Galena, Kansas story. Keith Watkins http://www.inlande mpirejazz.com  (Dec 31, 2013 | post #16)

Doubts arise over history of Galena's Murder Bordello

I was just reading at Route 66 News.com, link located below, and it sounds like the differences have been worked out between Carolyn Mclean and the Galena Murder Bordello owners. That will ultimately be very good for the community of Galena, Kansas. Congratulations to all. Maybe now its time to "spread the word" and make up with all of the so-called "out of towners", "you peoples" and the "peoples from other planets", as described in previous posts by Carolyn Mclean here and on the many other websites that Carolyn Mclean has made similar comments. In my humble opinion an apology would be a noble conclusion to this thread and others Mrs. Mclean. To quote Mrs. Mclean, " What would Jesus say!

Doubts arise over history of Galena's Murder Bordello

What other businesses in Galena can draw the type of tourists willing to pay "$525 for 12 hrs". I am still curious as to the number of local residents that were employed by this new venture. Also I have been unable to find anywhere on the internet where any of the "Unsuspecting Public" was complaining. The Stafflebacks' are the ones that negatively impacted and stained Galena's history many years ago. It also sounds like their were documented bordellos in the area as well that added to the local history. Your history was not changed by this venture. It was creatively brought back to life in a way that will position Galena to reap the benefits of new found tourism dollars for many years to come...  (Aug 11, 2013 | post #9)

Doubts arise over history of Galena's Murder Bordello

A few summers ago I had the chance to visit the town of Galena and, with no disrespect to anyone, I remember it mostly as the typical economically challenged Route 66 town. I was very impressed and fortunate to meet Melba and the rest of the gang across the street at "The Women on the Route" location. An attraction, to a certain extent, also built around and perpetuated by the make believe fantasy movie called "Cars". I see nothing wrong with aggressively marketing a venture in a town with obvious challenges. I am curious as to the number of local residents that were employed by the owners. So in conclusion and in my humble opinion, history will not preserve and or guaranty the future of Galena, Kansas for future inhabitants. But thinking outside the box and creative ventures will...  (Aug 11, 2013 | post #7)

Will the Wrightwood California Chamber of Commerce finally take advantage of what sounds like "free money" to finally help an economically struggling Wrightwood business community ?  (Apr 15, 2009 | post #1)

Route 66 Jazz

Jazz guitarist Bruce Forman and his western cowboy jazz band Cow Bop, will be hitting the road this summer traveling on America’s most storied road, Route 66, for the upcoming 2008 Route 66 Challenge. Starting in Chicago, on May 12, 2008, CowBop will be playing a mix of impromptu and pre-arranged concerts as well as the street corners, dives and honky tonks they frequented on their first three Route 66 Challenges. All the while bopping their way back west to the grand finish concert at Southern California’s Jazz Bakery on May 26th. All of the proceeds from performances, per-mile pledges, grants, and part of the CD revenue will benefit JazzMasters Workshop (JMW), a non-profit that Forman started in 2000. JMW recruits veteran musicians to mentor kids who otherwise might not have access to music lessons. Funds raised in 2008 will support two new programs for Boys & Girls Clubs in underserved areas. Cow Bop also hopes to inspire and challenge musicians and other communities along the way to begin programs with the help of JMW. “I expect and invite many musicians to find us out on the open road to come and play along says Bruce Forman. I’m throwing down the gauntlet here… it’s time to stop complaining come on out and do something!” For more information and the complete Route 66 Challenge itinerary and history go to:http://playrout e66.blogspot.com/  (Apr 17, 2008 | post #1)
