Letters To The Editor

Cell phone issue should be at the forefront of debate To the editor: Thank you for bringing out the way the APA handled the "cell tower issue." The APA and the Adirondack Council both say how they have advocated the installations, yet of course, neglect to explain that what they support is not viable. Please keep writing on this issue, keep the public informed about progress, or the lack thereof, and why what is happening, is happening. Any additional time without progress, asks for this tragedy to be repeated, and none of us who care want this. Senator Little's reply of "don't look " is so correct, and I am willing to wager that 100, or 120-foot towers, placed 500 feet from the roadway would attract little attention, and that it would require the construction of maybe five or six to cover from Glens Falls, to Keeseville, at the same time giving much better cell coverage in outerlying areas than is now enjoyed from the attempt in E'town, N.Y. with Verizons newest cell "service." Thank you again, please keep this issue in the forefront, until it is resolved and the people of the North Country are allowed into the 21st century. John Bottiroli Elizabethtown *********************************** Cell service needed on more than just the Northway To the editor: It is commendable that at least one conservation group has come forward and professed to be for towers along I-87 but that should not be the end of the story. Are they for towers that would service other lonely roads such as Route 30 or Route 28N where it is just as dangerous? Are we waiting for a death to act? I realize that state law allows for height restrictions but that thinking was prior to modern technology and maybe common sense should occur. Bill Hubschman
