HARBOR MARKER TO STAY BRIGHT

The light that marks Buffalo Harbor won't be dimmed, after all.

The U.S. Coast Guard has decided to keep the current optical system atop the modern Buffalo Harbor Light on the city's farthest breakwater, scrapping plans to replace it with a less powerful, more modern light source that would be easier to maintain.

The aero-beacon lens on the automated lighthouse, which was built in 1961, can be seen 27 miles away in good weather conditions.

Also, the Coast Guard is advising boaters that the government has issued a new ,23rd edition of the chart of Buffalo Harbor, due to changes in the shoreline and other information.
