(( Sometimes to truly experience history, you need to get away from the books and take a boat ride out to Matagorda Island State Park. Byron Cumberland calls it "fascinating." He says he fell in love with lighthouses while serving in the Navy, so, he quickly developed an interest in the old one towering 95 feet over the island. Cumberland speaks affectionately of the lighthouse. "I think it gives us a lot of grounding of who we are, knowing where we came from and who we came from." The lighthouse has peered down on the surrounding wetlands since 1852. It witnessed a little known Civil War battle and guided countless captains to the safety of the shore. "It was the main light as far as leading ships in here and that was before GPS systems and satellites and all that." He and others soon noticed though that the old structure was showing its age, especially the base. "Here's one of the anchor bolts that we took out - You can see it's corroded here, and deeper down it was even worse." So, Cumberland joined the Matagorda Island Foundation, which last year began a lighthouse transformation from top to bottom. The foundation has now been completely rebuilt, 16 pilings have been drilled, crews put on a new coat of paint and built a new top for the beacon of light inside. "It should draw a lot of visitors - We have a lot of inquiries about the lighthouse every year." He says the money for the big project came from a federal grant of close to $1 million, combined with $250 thousand in private donations. Half of those private donations came from Houston. Many of those who came for the dedication last week also came from Houston. But, no matter what city they called home, they were all impressed. One called it "awesome" and "worth saving." The Matagorda Island Foundation felt the same way. Mike Zientek for CBS News. ))

The state says the black bear population has increased substantially in the past decade.
It is unclear how many black bears there are, but the state says it's in the thousands and that number will continue to rise.
The best thing you can do to keep bears away is to avoid feeding them.
