      Ol' Blue, USA NEWS for March, 1999

    Ol' Blue®, USA is on the road again with its yearly Safety Tour. The two weeks between the time Ol' Blue, USA leaves California and arrives in Louisville, Kentucky for the Mid-America Trucking Show, is filled with exciting events bringing the Ol' Blue, USA message to radio listeners across the country, demonstrations at rest areas and schools, and four full days of preparation for show time. 

    The first event is scheduled for the early morning of March 11, when RJ Taylor will be a guest of Bill Mack on the Midnight Cowboy Trucking Network at www.midnightcowboy.com. Starting at 12:00 a.m. and running until the wee hours near dawn, this program is a favorite coast-to-coast. You can call in on the Shell Rotella T Hotline toll-free number, (800) 288-9227. 

    Next, on March 14th, Ol' Blue, USA will join a demonstration, by Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement and the Bowling Green Police, about driving safely around large vehicles. This event will take place at the Simpson County rest area on I-65, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The night of the 14th RJ will be a guest of Dave Nemo on the Road Gang Radio Network (listener line 1-800-344-7623), from midnight to 5 a.m.. Road Gang has a radio audience from coast-to-coast and on the web at www.theroadgang.com. RJ will answer questions about Ol' Blue, USA and all the related safety programs Ol' Blue, USA brings to civic groups, schools and the trucking industry-at-large. On the 16th the team will move to Louisville escorted by Sgt. Ben Hawkins, Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement who has become a valuable team member for a school presentation of the organization's "Big Wheels, Little Kids"© program. Another "electric" radio program is scheduled for the night of March 18, when Ol' Blue, USA and RJ will be guests, along with David Grizzell of Toy Convoy and Tim Young of the Mid-America Trucking Show, on the Truckin' Bozo Radio Network (listener line 1-888-860-TRUK) heard coast-to-coast and on the web at www.thebozo.com.  

    Then the hard work really begins with the laying of some 550 square yards of red carpet, setting up booths and taking the polishing cloth to 'Ol' Blue'® and its Rolling Billboard Trailer in preparation for opening day for the 28th Annual Mid-America Trucking Show. For the next 3 days, March 25-27, Ol' Blue, USA will be on display in its Safety Center '99 booth, #200 in the East Wing, to see old friends and make new ones. Stop on by and say "Hi" to the Ol' Blue, USA team and law enforcement from Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement, Kentucky State Police, Indiana State Police, Ohio State Highway Patrol and Tennessee Commercial Vehicle Enforcement! Making all of this possible is Ol' Blue, USA Sponsors, Michelin Tire, Shell Oil, Alcoa Wheel, Webb Wheel Products, Mid-America and International Trucking Shows. Many thanks to the California Highway Patrol, Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement, and Nevada Highway Patrol for their support and contribution to the Safety Tour '99. 

    For those of you who just can't make the show, be sure to visit Ol' Blue, USA on it's spankin' new LIVE Vid-Cam at www.olblueusa.org/video, which is being brought to everyone by the kindness and courtesy of Truck Net and Atticus Productions.  If your company is interested in sponsoring this worthwhile safety organization, in existence since 1986, please let them know by visiting them at their events or by writing to P.O. Box 2401, Van Nuys, CA 91404-2401 or faxing to (775) 514-1930.
