HAMLIN TOWNSHIP — An intruder attempted to break into the Big Sable Point Lighthouse at the Ludington State Park Saturday afternoon, April 15, and in a separate incident, a tree fell on a 74-year-old man’s car Saturday, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

The attempted break-in was reported at 2:59 p.m. “A subject broke open a screen door and threw a rock through a door window,” Cole said. No entry was gained into the lighthouse.

At 5:34 p.m., a pine tree fell onto a 74-year-old Ludington man’s Lincoln on Bryant Road east of Sherman Road in Pere Marquette Township, the sheriff said. “The pine tree had snapped off, bringing down a power line and breaking a power pole.
