Well,

I posted last week about Kodak getting involved with lighthouse renovations in the Apostle Islands ...

We know about Union Carbide and the Saginaw River Range Light ...

We now know about Exxon-Mobile with Ponham Rocks ...

Anyone know of other corporate partnerships in this area? Mentions were made this week of Price's Creek on the property of ADM ... is there a formal arrangement here?

Is this the harbinger of future lighthouse renovations?

Flipping the discussion, is it also a way for companies that have image problems in the past, like E/M and UC, to put a better face on their corporate image?

Aside from that, if you get a chance, Ponham Rocks is a real beauty of a light ... see it if you get the chance ... I love the architecture and style of this structure.
