  • A year of change... 2013 brought many opportunities to visit and promote St. Clements Island and the Blackistone Island Lighthouse.

    July 1, 2013 - Joe Gill, NEW secretary of the MD Department of Natural Resources selected the Mother County to host his first meet and greet around the State. Johnny Wood and Beverly Bailey had breakfast with the secretary to brief him on St. Clements Island and the revetment issues on the SE side of the island. Later that day a group of eighty state park stakeholders gathered at Greenwell State Park for an overview of Secretary Gills initiatives for the department in the coming year.

    Weather brought challenges for the Lighthouse to be open many weekends during 2013. We were able to host Nation-al Lighthouse Day for the third year on Sunday August 4, 2013. Over one hundred and seventy five people visited that day. Kathy Huekler and Bud Kretzschmar came from Harford County for the weekend to complete their tour of all of the Lighthouses is Maryland. This was their 27th Maryland Lighthouse and Kathy proclaimed the Blackis-tone Lighthouse is her favorite of all. I could live here she said. Later in the year we had a call from a St. Clements Hundred member about the continued shoreline erosion on the SE side.

    A survey of the island was immediately done. Since July the shore-line had eroded another four feet. In 2009 a project to reinforce the revetment was approved and fund-ed. Unfortunately Ernesto hit and the project money was diverted to Point Lookout that was devastated by the storm. In October new approvals were given for the project with a start date of July 2015 FY 2016. But that start date is too far in the future. We need-ed immediate action. Senate President Mike Miller met with the Hundred and pledged his support for moving up the funding and the project for this fiscal year. Roy Dyson, Johnny Wood and John Bohanan are all aware of the issues and support our need to move the project ahead. With the 2014 Legislative session upon us we urge all of you to

    contact our representatives in Annapolis to support the project funding for this fiscal year. Another year, another four feet, tick, tick, tickthe island.
