Hey Batter, Batter, Batter! SWING!
158 TOWERS for Margaret Harris
AND 7 TOWERS for the Palace
Yes, that's right, the Palace now has approximately 7 of its own NEW TOWERS within a half mile radius of their throne room. What's that all about? Are they all cell phone towers? Is this what it takes to get 4G wireless? Are they building a broacast facility? Is this why they wanted all that SPLOST money for videoconferencing? Are they planning on spying on all of us? Are they being replaced by 3-D images like on the Wizard of OZ, a sound effects machine for their microphones and a giant fog machine? What is going on here?
The homeowners and residents near Margaret Harris Comprehensive School in Atlanta have recently learned that their neighborhood is one of the 9 that will soon receive a cell tower without a single notification to the community by the school, the school board or the county zoning officials.
Several representatives in this tight-knit community plan to speak out at the Monday board meeting.
Any other schools that would also like to be represented during the public comments portion of the board meeting, sign up now! Just send an email to: Margaret_c_Francois@fc.dekalb.k12.ga.us and include the school you would like to reference as well as the topic of your "issue" and how you have attempted to resolve it in the past. You get three minutes and a lot of blank stares. It's fun!
Remember - it was this time of year LAST YEAR that the 12 cell tower schools were selected by the school board's special committee headed by Steve Donahue of Plant Services. He doesn't have an Engineering Degree or anything like that. He is just a former principal who did some construction work to put himself through college. He's the same one you can thank for the timely response your school likely gets when they put in a maintenance request or need a repair to something minor like the septic tank.
Don't forget ... if your school escaped without being selected for a cell tower during the first round draft picks of 2011, you might be a lucky winner THIS YEAR. That means they could be talking about you RIGHT NOW! We suggest that you become PROACTIVE and get in front of the board and let it be know for the public record that you persoanlly or collectively DO NOT WANT TO BE NEXT! Show support for those who are on the list now and look out for your neighborhood now as YOU COULD BE NEXT!
