Ric Mixter Offshore Outposts

Michigan’s lighthouses are some of the most remote beacons found in the United States. These markers guided sailors to port and marked dangerous islands and reefs miles from shore. Ric Mixter shares some of the most remote locations along with commentary from those who were stationed at DeTour and Huron Island. He also solves the mystery of the explosion at Standard Rock which killed a crewman. You’ll see rare interviews as well as footage of what the lighthouses look like today.

This planning effort was designed to establish a common economic vision that will drive Genesee County, Michigan communities forward and will focus on promoting long-term change in such a way that existing institutions (government, civic groups, non-profits, etc.) can be more responsive to the community’s needs and aspirations. Now that the team enters into the execution phase of work, the inclusive process is transitioning from listening to acting and all are invited to participate.
