Q: Can you tell me about historic lighthouses that offer overnight accommodations?A: At a lighthouse, you can prepare your own food and live in a dormitory setting or be served two or three meals a day in anelegant atmosphere.Hosteling International-American Youth Hostels runs three lighthouses where dormitory rooms, with two to six beds in a room, predominate. Visitors provide their own food and rent linens at $1 a person per stay. Both sites near San Francisco afford a view of the annual migration of gray whales between November and April.

No offense to conventional hotels, but sometimes you just want to stay someplace a little different, a little avant-garde, someplace you'll be able to tell the grandkids about someday. You know, someplace that, once you post a picture on Facebook, will make every one of your 732 friends positively green with envy - or at least scratching their heads, wondering how you ever found this place. (And preferably, someplace that won't require taking out a second mortgage to get there and hang out for a few days - which, regrettably, precludes anything atop Mount Kilimanjaro.)

LIKE MANY homeowners, I break into a sweat when I hear the word "termite." The other day my fear of this wood-eater increased when I visited the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. This lighthouse, which serves as home to the Baltimore Maritime Museum, is perched 15 feet above the ground. It sits on cast-iron pilings. Its outer walls and sub-flooring are made of half-inch thick cast iron. But somehow, termites had made their way up to the lighthouse and had been munching on its wooden parts.

Q: I'm interested in lighthouse artwork, models, literature and related items. Are there any lighthouses open to the public in the Chicago area, or any lighthouse exhibitions, books, publications or organizations? Also, are there any lighthouse muralists?A: Lighthouse lovers and collectors will beam upon seeing the "Eyes on the Sea: A Celebration of Lighthouses" exhibit on view through Dec. 31 at the John G.

Word that Thomas Point Lighthouse - one of the most recognizable symbols of the Chesapeake Bay - would be up for grabs this summer generated interest from nearly a dozen groups, including one as far away as Maine. But just one application for the historic iron-framed lighthouse arrived Monday at the National Park Service building in Washington, hand-delivered by the vice president of the U.S. Lighthouse Society on behalf of that group and its Annapolis partners. "This seems like it will be an absolutely wonderful consortium," said Dan Smith of the park service.

With city council approval now in place, Annapolis will join six other groups pursuing ownership of the Thomas Point Lighthouse, a one-of-a-kind historic symbol of the Chesapeake Bay. Applications for the lighthouse are due Monday, and National Park Service officials overseeing the property transfer from the Coast Guard said Annapolis and its partners stand a good chance of acquiring the 128-year-old property. Jennifer Perunko, a contractor with the park service, said coalitions such as the one Annapolis has built tend to have an advantage in the lighthouse-acquisition process.

For more than 10 years, the replica Chesapeake Bay lighthouse stood 150 feet tall at the Baltimore Marine Center at Lighthouse Point in Canton.The structure -- a converted century-old smokestack -- became a symbol of the center, a 14-acre commercial and residential development in the 2600 and 2700 blocks of Boston St. But the wood foundation became unstable, and the brick tower began to list."

Letter to The Record | April 18, 2013
Editor: I write to support the City of Havre de Grace's attempt to purchase the 701 Concord Street (Gamatoria's) property.  As the President of the Friends of the Concord Point Lighthouse and representing its Board of Directors, I ask all Havre de Grace citizens to vote YES on this ballot question. There are many reasons for my support of this effort.  Number one it would be an additional treasure for tourism in our city.  It would greatly enhance the appearance and accessibility of the Concord Point Lighthouse property.  It would certainly be better for the city than anything a commercial developer would provide.

With limited materials, a patriotic theme, and their own ingenuity, students at The Harbour School put together their ninth annual Fourth of July parade of paper floats Tuesday. Working on a tight schedule, each class at the Owings Mills school for children with learning and developmental disabilities built their entries, bearing in mind this year's "O Say Can You See" theme. With teachers' supply carts for wheels, they marched their sparkling displays before a panel of judges. "We give them a small bag of supplies but no money," said Martha Schneider, program director at the Owings Mills school, whose 106 students range in age from 6 to 21 years.
