What's in the Window winner and clues for this week

Each week we place clues on a piece of paper in our window at 17 N. Main in Butler in our "What's in the Window" contest and our winner this week is Bill Nieder, who correctly guessed the four lane upgrade of 71 highway (now I-49):

Around 1970 - work completed near Butler
2 to 4 - went from two lanes to four
bypass - traffic no longer went directly through Butler (can you imagine?)

Bill wins a cool prize courtesy of Osage Valley Electric Coop for his effort!

Clues for this week:

Fort Africa
Senator Jim Lane

If you can guess what landmark, business or historical event (all past or present) these clues lead to, you'll win a really cool prize too!
