FOURTEEN MILE POINT
CHARITY ISLAND
LONG TAIL POINT
MINNESOTA POINT
POVERTY ISLAND
TURTLE ISLAND
WEST SISTER ISLAND
WAUGOSHANCE

Also on the list is Bailey's Harbor Birdcage Lantern. Left off the list is both Green Islands (Ohio and Wisconsin), because....

"Both structures are so far gone and remote that to bring them back would require a total rebuilding, which is highly unlikely to ever happen...."

I'm afraid that no one will get any progress done on the listed lights anyway. Sure is sad. :(

P.S. This is my 100th post! :mrgreen:

Why do you think there has been a recent flood of doomsday sayers? It seems like there are hundreds of these guys out there on the internet. It's on both sides too, left and right. I know people will say that they've always been around, but are you can't seriously say that we are not infested with them lately...
