    USA Today article about lighthouses

    Print Headline: Love for lighthouses coninues to brighten

    Several other communities have rebuilt replicas of lost lighthouses or even moved existing lighthouses to a new location, says Pete Lesher, the chief curator for the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. Lighthouse replicas have been built in Connecticut, Florida, New York and North Carolina, among other places, he says.
    Projects mentioned in the article:
    Cambridge. MD,Choptank River Lighthouse
    New Orleans, the New Canal Lighthouse
    Manteo, NC, Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse


    Does anybody belong to their local Lighthouse Society or have been involved in such a effort?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Only 750 lighthouses??? I have to question that! Michigan has 115 historic lighthouses alone, not to count the modern faux ones!
