ST. JOSEPH - You better hurry if you want a close-up look at the St. Joseph lighthouses. Renovations are expected to start in about six weeks, and the work will block the North Pier for the summer. When the work is done, the historic lighthouses will be restored to their appearance in 1932, including wooden planks along the catwalks. (St. Joseph-Benton Harbor Herald-Palladium)
