Oak Island Light[edit]

Re your recent overall edit of the subject page, I, like you, have concerns about the text/graphic formatting. I was not happy with my last editing of the page but my solution is a long run one, i.e., replace/reformat/resize/relocate the imagery on the page rather than eliminate it. So I think your removal of some images was premature. It may have to be done but I am trying to get more appropriate photos with permission which is not easy. So much for this concern.

Re the text edit of the subject page, I was appalled to say the least. Here are two selections that do not meet my standards: 1. Being completed in 1958, the Oak Island Light is one of the newest lighthouses in the United States. When completed the Oak Island Light replaced the Cape Fear Lighthouse, a steel skeleton structure on Bald Head Island, which was demolished later in 1958. My view is this is awkward, repetitive (completed-we all know that it was indeed finished)) and poorly phrased. 2. The main structure is anchored by 24 pilings 67’ deep (10" round and filled with concrete), the overall structure is 153’ tall with 148’ of that above grade. My view on this is not only missing necessary punctuation, it is also repetitive (structure).

And finally, your interpretation of editing needs re references differs from mine. For example, the section on visitation: A minimum of two weeks advance notice is normally required to obtain a tour reservation, which can be obtained on-line by visiting the Oak Island Lighthouse web site. took out the direct reference to the referenced web site. Its inclusion in the existing version was at the direct request of the FOIL Board which did not want any confusion as to where to go. In my next edit I will reference it rather than directly cite it but it will ensure that the reader gets to the so-called Official OI Lighthouse site.

While I am somewhat of a rookie in this world, I am a veteran writer and more importantly, try hard. Thus I would be happy to correspond with you directly on this matter (, or it you prefer, I do have a user page, Regards. Frank Bausch. Francisbausch (talk) 18:58, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
