    Jim gets credit for discovering it, but I think that David and Jon Tschiggfrie, Tom Hawkins, and Forrest Wilkinson -- and others I don't know about -- were the leaders in getting it passed.

    Jim Armstrong has found 3 more: St. Paul (a biggie), and Ashland and Catlettsburg, KY. The resolution count now stands at 39.

    Are there really 100 out there? If you know of any not on my list (see page 1 above), please post it; Rep. Chabot finds a comprehensive list helpful.

    Natchez (our first Lower Mississippi resolution) and the Kentucky House of Representatives came through last week. The local resolution count now stands at 36.

    We have one below Grandview! Actually, we've had one for a while: Paducah passed a DQ resolution on Nov. 13. And we have 2 more from out in Tschiggfrieland: Burlington and Wabasha.

    The list now stands at 33.

    Thanks to Jim Armstrong's latest success (Pittsburgh), our local resolution list now stands at 29. See my edited posting of 12-4-07 (above) for the complete list.

    You will notice the conspicuous absence of anything below Grandview and Keokuk. What is the story down there? Does anyone want to step into the breach?

    P.S. (2-7-08) And Madison, IN makes 30.

    Hi, David, Jo Ann & Marion:
    Glad you got the news, David, about the resolution from Cincinnati. I attended the 'Tourism Committee' meeting the day before in Council Chambers but they had a 'glich' with not enough attendees for the quorum needed under the city's 10:10 rule. It was addressed the next day in full City Council meeting. Not much said about it any of us could find here. The media attended with cameras the day before but nothing to report on or take video of. One member of the committee said, "I hope I'm in as good shape at 80 as the DELTA QUEEN is now." The people I met were very kind and courteous.

    Cheers and thanks,
    R. Dale Flick

    Resolution list

    Cincinnati came through on Dec. 19 -- #23 on our list (per my updated 12-04-07 post). Still nothing downriver from Keokuk and Grandview; can we step up the pressure down there?

    Add one more city to the growing list of supporters for the Delta Queen. At last night's council meeting, the City of Dubuque adopted the latest resolution in support of granting the Delta Queen an exemption. And a reporter for a network TV station serving Dubuque who was present at the meeting asked to meet with me today to do a story about the boat. At least two council members mentioned information presented in the "Save the Delta Queen" video as influencing them to support the resolution. So slowly but surely, the real facts in the case are reaching our elected officials and the media seems interested in getting the word out to the general public as well. Encouraging signs.

    Neal,

    I will be there at tonight's council meeting, and fully expect Dubuque to adopt a resolution. Will post the results after the meeting adjourns at 8:00.

    I got an email from a Dubuque, Iowa Council member this am. This on the agenda

    "We have the Delta Queen Resolution on the Monday (12/19/07) agenda. I expect it to
    pass without dissent."
