Vandalism At Miscou Lighthouse

Mischief In The Men’s Room

Miscou Island LighthouseThis time, Miscou lighthouse in New Brunswick (Canada) has become the latest victim of vandalism. Fortunately, it was only in the restrooms at the site and not the lighthouse proper. But that doesn’t matter. There should never be any destruction at historic properties. Ever. Miscou Lighthouse boasts the only Fresnel lens (Third Order) in an operating lighthouse in the province. And underwent a major renovation to make it a tourist attraction last year, including a major environmental cleanup at the site. A paved parking area large enough for tour buses, a deck around the lighthouse and washroom facilities and a large grassy area were completed this past summer.

From the Royal Canadian Mounted Police:

During the night of October 10 to 11, 2009, one or more individuals broke into the washroom of the Miscou lighthouse, which is located at the end of Route 113, in New Brunswick. The individual(s) broke both exterior doors as well as the stalls and the flooring. They also poured soap on the floor. Similar mischiefs had been reported during the previous summer season. The help of the population is essential to protect that historical site. Anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of the individual(s) is asked to contact the RCMP at 506-393-3000 or, to remain anonymous, to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).

If you can help, please contact the RCMP with any information. Don’t let our history be destroyed by punks.

    Frankly, we haven’t analyzed this to the point that we stand firmly on that calculation. But from Edge Studio’s perspective as a premier voice production and training facility, we can attest that, for many reasons, the voice over field continues to grow, and the need for voice over talent is booming.

    stuff, just wonderful! This has been simply remarkably open-handed with people like you to grant unreservedly what most of us might have marketed for an electronic book to help make some bucks on their own, even more so given that you might have tried it in case you decided.

    A good way to prioritize your time is to separate work into 3 piles: A, B, and C. “A” tasks are high priority-must be done ASAP. “B” tasks are important, and must completed within the short term. “C” tasks are essentially fillers, work that should be done but has no real due date, and can be worked in between “B” tasks.
