Derby Festival Trouble

Call it another sign of the times.

The Kentucky Derby festival is having trouble raising funds this year.

The festival is having trouble attracting corporate sponsors.

Festival sponsors say they are about $250,000 behind where they were last year.

They say the economy is making it difficult to raise money.

Organizers say to off-set the lack of sponsors they are raising the price of pegasus pins and other merchandise.
