Default Str. Loretta Howard / D.W. Wisherd

I am relatively unfamiliar with the Historic Sternwheeler Preservation Association and their former towboat the Loretta Howard (later on the D.W. Wisherd). I have found on their website that they are attempting to cosmetically restore the old towboat, but then discovered that this organization is no more?! What happened to the Loretta Howard? The Barbara H, too? I saw on her website that she was sold in 2012? Being that I'm surrounded by corn fields in landlocked Illinois, I rarely hear of the goings-on of the rivers. Thanks!
