I would like everyone to know that the lighthouse in the photograph on Page B1 of the March 18 edition of the Press Herald is not Bug Light, as was stated in the caption.

Bug Light is the small, white lighthouse situated in Bug Light park. Its official name is Portland Breakwater Lighthouse.

The lighthouse in the photograph is the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse. It is at the end of the breakwater that extends from the Southern Maine Community College campus.

Bug Light is rarely open to the public, but there are guided tours of Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse on the weekends during the summer. People interested in seeing the interior of this interesting lighthouse can find more information on our website: www.springpointlight.org.
