Ancillary article on Port Huron Museum Policy ... From The Times Herald

An Excerpt ...
For-profit and not-for-profit organizations alike have to make tough business decisions every day regarding what they will do with the reduced resources available. The Port Huron Museum is not immune to this.

The city of Port Huron recently made a tough decision, one that probably will turn out better for all concerned. In declining to accept ownership of the historic Fort Gratiot Lighthouse, but approving matching funds for the Save America's Treasures Grant, Port Huron's leaders helped guarantee the restoration of the lighthouse and opened the door to a new cooperative relationship with St. Clair County that could help create a regional support base for this project.

The museum faces the same challenges as any other organization. The current economic environment led us to have discussions where all options were reviewed.

Eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.

No one knows how many humdingers
there are in a lollapalooza."

Some divergent opinions there, to be sure….I would still come down on the side favoring the Lighthouse, as the longer the wait is, the more expensive the projects become. Best to do it ASAP, and preserve the light and grounds for their future community heritage. Look what they have done with Edison Park, that is a truly nice riverfront walkway, and with a couple of brick Range Lights to boot.
