From the Lighthouse Depot Dispatch

Last Month's Trivia Question & Answer

The building of the 110-foot Trinity Shoals Lighthouse 20 miles off the coast of Louisiana began in 1873. How long did it take to build the lighthouse or in what year was construction completed? The answer to this trick question is: Trinity Shoals Lighthouse was never completed. Construction stopped in 1873 because of weather conditions. At that time $90,000 had already been spent on its construction. Congratulations to Brent Westwood of Martinsville, VA, whose name was randomly picked from among the correct answer entries. We have sent Brent a Lighthouse "Footprints in the Sand" afghan as his prize.

I received the afgan in the mail, yesterday, and it really is
quite attractive.
