Lighthouse could be a keeper


Nobska Light in Woods Hole, Mass., might still end up being sold, but the Coast Guard has another opportunity for an outside group to take over the iconic building.

Non-profit organizations and government groups have until early August to pitch a plan to run the lighthouse and attached residence through a grant agreement.

Akin to a lease or license agreement, the grant would allow an organization to restore the lighthouse and run a program from there without having to pay rent. The Coast Guard would still own the structure, which continues to be used as a navigational aid, and run its light and foghorn.
