I read this article and am a bit confused in the details of the story. One over all impression I came away with is this story has not made much noise - sound bits in the local community. Where is the public reaction to the issue of the lighthouse being transferred?

This community is not wealthy and they are concentrating more on self preservation. I believe that would account for the non specific public reaction Carole.....

I have been there several times over the years as (my adult children lived there for several years), and I agree that it is not a "Park" responsibility. It simply is not a park! It is time that they handed over the responsibilities over to the historical society. Just MHO of course!
