Shining light

Published: Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 09:41 AM.

The lighthouse is surely not worth continued bad blood – even within the Historical Society – that seems part of the local government DNA.

And it is a shame that saving the lighthouse has became a competition to begin with – particularly when the competition results only in wounds.

The argument could be fairly made that a replica lighthouse, using the original as a model, would fit the Bayfront Park concept just fine.

But the award of the lighthouse to the city has positioned the City Commission for the opportunity to use foresight and long-term vision that the BOCC can never seem to get its hands around to the benefit of the entire county.

Shine the light a little farther than Salinas Park or Bayfront Park.
