Default More bad news for the BELLE OF LOUISVILLE

Hey all,

Once again, local NBC affiliate WAVE TV3's Trouble$hooter Reporter Eric Flack is slandering the BELLE OF LOUISVILLE for her operation draining the city coffers. Once again he talks about how much money the boat needs to operate and how the Mayor needs to cut the budget.

I am beginning to wonder why this guy hates the BELLE so much. He continues to do his annual slander campaign on her. Yet, some of the comments on the article show the public may be on to him. The BELLE's problems are more than the money, they are the operation as a whole. Letting a private city-funded entity (Waterfront Development Corporation) run the operation isn't the answer. They don't understand the operation of a steamboat. It isn't what they do. The BELLE needs a Operating Board like she had in the past with River People in control...not politicians protecting their outrageous paychecks. In the days of the Operating Board she was self sustaining...she hasn't been since the Operating Board was dissolved.

Lets face it folks...if we want the BELLE to survive, we need to ante up the money and ride her. We also need to get the word out to the public and get them to ride her.
