Today marks the 32nd anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Radio stations in town will be playing some Gordon Lightfoot and there will be a ceremony at Splitrock Lighthouse tonight.

"The lake it is said, never gives up her dead, when the skies of November turn gloomy!"
Gordon Lightfoot- The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
