Default Belle 100th Anniversary cut down

Here is a paraphrase of an email I received on Thursday from Alan Bernstein of B & B Riverboats of Newport----"Today we were informed that the state of Kentucky did not fund the Waterfront Development Commission that is putting on the festival. They have decided not to have the visiting boats come to Louisville in October. They are still going to celebrate the birthday but only with the Belle and Spirit of Jefferson but not with any other boats". Considering all the meeting, travel, time and effort that Alan has put into this event, the announcement must be a crushing blow. Alan Bernstein has been one of the greater motivational forces behind every Tall Stacks event in Cincinnati. It had appeared to me that Louisville was finally in a position to show Cincinnati just how things could be done! Not So!
