Here are some news stories about Beal and Sombrero on the Internet:

More Information:
Jason Butterworth has posted an article on Sombrero Island, originally published in "Anguilla Life" magazine, at this web site:

Even though it is 40 miles away, Sombrero has been a part of Anguilla for years. There is a lighthouse on it to warn shipping of the danger.
