The Lighthouse move

Published: Thursday, May 30, 2013 at 10:11 AM.

Moving the Lighthouse to Port St. Joe destroys the 160 years of historic value.  Port St. Joe has very much history that is not capitalized on……why not focus on the history of Port St. Joe and leave the Cape history as it stands?  If the true intent is to save the lighthouse, then all would agree that using private donations to move it safely to Salina’s Park is a much better option that using $1M of taxpayer money to move the lighthouse to the City, for no returned value whatsoever.

Those interested in saving $1,000,000 of taxpayer money and preserving the history of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse can make donations (anonymously if preferred) at  No monies need be collected at this time, only your pledge, so that when the City cannot raise $1MM, or the people of Port St. Joe let their voice be heard, the Lighthouse can be saved and moved to Salina’s Park before storm season allows Mother Nature to take her from us.

Respectfully submitted,
Julia Cunningham
Cape San Blas, Gulf County Florida
