The Golden Gem of Pigeon Point Lighthouse
Annual re-lighting ceremony of the First-order Fresnel lens, Nov 18, 2006

Angel Andrea and Mauro recently awarded me with a double surprising inspiring blessing! Thank you Andrea and Mauro for your inspiring Angelic Award!

Pigeon Point Lighthouse news update:

After six years, the California State Parks Foundation has started a $6 million fundraising campaign to restore and re-open Pigeon Point Lighthouse. The maintenance of Lighthouse has been neglected since the original First Order Fresnel lens was replaced by an automated DCB-24 Aerobeacon in 1974.

Time is running out before Lighthouse Levitation may be required to support the weight of the 8,000-pound First Order Fresnel lens, Lantern Room, and DCB-24 Aerobeacon. Due to the advances in electronic navigation, historic Lighthouse Treasures provide backup to commercial ships according to Senior Chief Michael Ellis, with U.S. Coast Guard’s Aids to Navigation Team in San Francisco. Lighthouses continue to be important navigational guardians for small craft with less sophisticated equipment.

For public safety, the popular Lighthouse Tower at Pigeon Point has been closed since 2001 when major structural damages were revealed after a section of the cornice fell. The hostel and the grounds are open providing picturesque vistas of the rocky coastline.

Old Saybrook Lighthouse Politics of Preservation

blogoldsay Once again, Old Saybrook Lighthouse is in the news apparently to fuel the flames of a controversy between local political concerns and federal Lighthouse Preservation procedures. First Selectman Michael Pace has noted the Town of Old Saybrook was originally interested in Lighthouse ownership, followed by their grave concerns over public safety and public access, and he is currently requesting the federal government to keep ownership of the Lighthouse.

At stake is the possible future restoration and preservation of one or two historic active Lighthouses in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. Before releasing a Notice of Availability to the public, the General Services Administration assesses historic Lighthouse properties first.

In this unusually extended media event (1), Congressman Joe Courtney has scheduled a January 30th conference meeting for First Selectman Michael Pace to voice his three concerns about the potential transfer or auction of Old Saybrook Lighthouse to the Coast Guard and the General Services Administration.

Beside the emergency management and public access issues, Old Saybrook Lighthouse, located at the end of a half-mile jetty to aid entering the mouth of the Connecticut River, is a “critical safety beacon for boaters” according to First Selectman Michael Pace.
Yet, the Coast Guard is committed to operating the Outer Lighthouse as an Active Navigational Aid and may excess the Lighthouse Landmark to a organization for restoration and preservation.

Old Saybrook Breakwater Lighthouse is a popular symbol of the community and the icon of a Connecticut “Save the Sound” license plate used as a part of the drive to preserve Long Island Sound. Surprisingly, no local group has proactively stepped forward with a “Save Our Sentinel” plan to preserve their historic active Symbol of Safety before a Notice of Availability is officially released.

To date, the online news has only reported the local concerns voiced by the Town government and the residents living in the private borough of Fenwick.

As noted in a previous post, the best short term solution is to transfer ownership to the National Park Service until all the issues can be resolved. The National Park Service currently owns and maintains at least 23 Lighthouses (2).

In the meantime, Katharine Hepburn provided 4 acres of beachfront property in Fenwick as protected undeveloped land with a view of the Outer Light for public enjoyment!

For more information about the Lighthouses, please the “Saybrook Breakwater Light Privacy Problems” post.

____________________

footnotes:

(1) News of Lighthouse ownership transfer is generally reported after the General Services Administration publicly releases a Notice of Availability. After a Notice of Availability has been announced, interested Non-profit organizations and local governments have two months to submit their Letter of Interest. The National Park Service reviews the submitted Non-profit applications in private and the process averages one year to complete.

According to the Secretary of the Interior, Old Saybrook Breakwater Lighthouse and Lynde Point Lighthouse have not been officially recommended for ownership transfer per the latest list of 36 Lighthouses recommended for transfer and a Notice of Availability has not been issued by the General Services Administration.

If no local government or non-profit group expresses a interest in owning the Lighthouse, the Lighthouse may be placed on the market for private sale using the GSA online auction.

(2) The National Park Service owns and maintains the following Lighthouses:

• Bear Island Lighthouse
• Derby Wharf Light • Three Sisters Lights • Nauset Lighthouse
• Cape Cod (Highland) Lighthouse
• Fire Island Lighthouse • Sandy Hook Lighthouse
• Bodie Island Lighthouse • Cape Hatteras Lighthouse
• Cape Lookout Lighthouse • Ocracoke Island Lighthouse
• Cockspur Island Light
• Dry Tortugas (Loggerhead Key) Light • Tortugas Harbor (Fort Jefferson) Light
• Au Sable Lighthouse • Rock Harbor Lighthouse
• Alcatraz Island Lighthouse • Anacapa Island Light • Fort Point Light • Point Bonita Lighthouse • Old Point Loma Lighthouse, • Point Reyes Lighthouse • Molokai (Kalauppa) Light

Technorati Thunderdome Lighthouse Lift-0ff & Comedy Disc CD Meme

bodic In our last chapter, Miss Feedburner was caught in the web of the Technorati Tunagate.
To escape the clutches of vanishing links and tags in the digital Black Hole of Technorati, Miss Feedburner climbed this French Lighthouse hoping the powerful Light Beam of Rocket ship shape Lighthouse was strong enough to achieve zero gravity in the digital universe of Google’s Present Ration!

During this post, the music band was under contract to the Traveling Bra Band Meme (2) which provided the funds for Miss Feedburner to release her first Comedy Disc CD!

pinkcd

Featuring Miss FeedBurner singing her number one hit, “Out of the Ruins, We Don´t Need Another Digital Hero – because we all live in the Technorati Thunderdome!”

Will Miss Feedburner find the new digital web frontier of her dreams???
Will Denny Crane leave Alan Shore at Boston Legal to explore this new digital web frontier as Captain James T. Kirk using Miss Feedburner as his personal navigator?

To find out, stay tune for another intriguing chapter written by Data and RRS FishBurner , III located somewhere in a Blogosphere galaxy near you.

Meanwhile back on the Third Rock from the Sun, this Lighthouse is an actual working manned French Lighthouse called the Headlight of Bodic (Phare de Bodic) which was built in 1949 to replace the old Lighthouse destroyed in World War II.

The distinctive structure (Daymark) is a 75.5-feet (23 m) high cylindrical stone tower flanked by a huge stone wall daymark which appears as a gigantic arrow to guide approaching mariners entering the mouth of the Le Trieux River. Mariners align the La Croix (Headlight of the Cross) Front Range Light with the Phare de Bodic Rear Range Light to stay on course in the safe channel of the river mouth.

The Lighthouse exhibits a Quick Flashing White Light, the Light Characteristic which in French is called the White fire scintillating(1) Fires, illuminated by a 90 W Halogen Lamp 180-feet high (55 m) above sea level visible to a range of 21 nautical miles.

The Lighthouse is closed to the public and is the private home of the resident Lighthouse Keeper. The stone Keeper’s house is attached to the rear of the Lighthouse. The grounds of the Lighthouse are open to the public which is located on the west bank of the river near Kermouster, Lézardrieux, Côte d’Armor, France.
