Default *Any Derby Week news?*

Steamboating colleagues:
Busy here for some days and catching up now. With the current financial situation, along with the DQ/AQ out of operation, it dawned on me to ask what news there is for the big Derby Week activities in Louisville? In past years there usually has been some 'press' on this but, so far, I'm in the dark. Keith and others down Louisville way may know. All I could think of for any plans this year would, possibly, be the BELLE OF LOUISVILLE or one of B/B RIVERBOATS vessels like the BELLE OF CINCINNATI. Just asking, so forgive me if I've missed something.

TRAVEL WEEKLY [*Publication to the trade] arrived and it appears the blue water cruise industry along with companies operating on European/Russian/Chinese rivers are pulling in their belts and retrenching faced with the financial squeeze. Several cruise lines now offering 'insurance and refund plans' for those facing job losses. Does not sound good. Yet, hope springs eternal.

Well, what do I know?

Coal Haven Landing, Ohio River.
