The SPIRIT OF DUBUQUE has been sold to a Cincinnati riverboat company, as its longtime owners are retiring. The boat has left and is enroute to her new port, but the souvenir shop is still in Dubuque. Here's the word on it:

Last chance to get your Spirit of Dubuque souvenir!!! Beginning Saturday May 6 (10:00am to 2:00pm) and until their stock is sold, Walt and Nancy will have the Spirit gift shop open for purchases. Get your piece of memorabilia before it's too late. Once the items are gone, they're gone for good!!
