  • The 114-foot tall Minot’s Ledge Lighthouse located about a mile off Scituate, Mass., is available to the right person…for free. It may not be for sale, but it does come with some cost. The new owner must promise to pay for upkeep and maintenance in accordance with the Historic Lighthouse Preservation Handbook. Applications are due by September 30th. Read the article below for application guidelines.

  • Sure, there hasn’t been much tropical storm activity, but we’re not in the clear just yet. The season doesn’t end until November 30, so there is still plenty of time for a major storm to develop. As a matter of fact, Hurricane Felicia is putting pressure on the Hawaiian Islands. Currently the storm is a Category 3, but is expected to downgrade to a tropical depression before making landfall (or is it islandfall?) late Monday. Although your hurricane preparedness plans should already be in action, now is as good of time as any to get ready. For more information on hurricane preparedness, go to ready.gov.
