On this edition of ST, we cover some interesting and less-familiar Tulsa history by way of a new biography of Cy Avery. Our guest is the Missouri-based author Susan Croce Kelly, author of "Father of Route 66: The Story of Cy Avery," which is just out from OU Press. Kelly will be speaking about and signing copies of this book on Saturday the 27th at the Tulsa Historical Society; the event is free to the public and begins at 10:30am.
The Tulsa region is key to Oklahoma’s economic success, with Tulsa’s Future playing a leading role in the state’s economic development. That’s what Oklahoma Lt. Governor Todd Lamb, business leaders and elected officials had to say at the annual meeting for the Tulsa Metro Chamber’s Tulsa’s Future economic development initiative this week.
