180-foot tower planned south of Lone Star Lake

February 11, 2013


Douglas County commissioners on Wednesday will consider a conditional use permit to allow a 180-foot-tall emergency communications tower on property south of Lone Star Lake.

The commission meets at 4 p.m. Wednesday in the County Courthouse, 1100 Massachusetts St.

The tower would be constructed on property the county intends to lease from Jere McElhaney at the southeast corner of North 400 Road and East 550 Road, about 10 miles west and one mile north of Baldwin City. Commissioners will also vote on the proposed lease with McElhaney, who is a former county commissioner.

County officials say the tower will help enhance and upgrade the county's emergency communications system to conform with new 800 MHz digital radio standards.

It's on a hill. There's already a water tower there. Wonder if they couldn't have mounted the damn thing on top of it.

Interesting film on effects of cell towers, health and envoronmental effects - food for thought: Resonance - Beings of Frequency (documentary film)

Pasted from page above: his spectacular documentary uncovers for the very first time, the actual mechanisms by which mobile phone technology can cause cancer. And, how every single one of us is reacting to the biggest change in environment this planet has ever seen.

Two billion years ago life first arrived on this planet; a planet, which was filled with a natural frequency. As life slowly evolved, it did so surrounded by this frequency. and Inevitably, it began tuning in.

By the time mankind arrived on earth an incredible relationship had been struck; a relationship that science is just beginning to comprehend.

Research is showing that being exposed to this frequency is absolutely integral to us. It controls our mental and physical health, it synchronizes our circadian rhythms, and it aids our immune system and improves our sense of wellbeing.

Not only are we surrounded by natural frequencies, our bodies are filled with them too. Our cells communicate using electro magnetic frequencies. Our brain emits a constant stream of frequencies and our DNA delivers instructions, using frequency waves. Without them we couldn't exist for more than a second.

This delicate balance has taken billions of years to perfect. But over the last 25 years the harmony has been disturbed. and disturbed dramatically.

Mankind has submerged itself in an ocean of artificial frequencies. They are all around us, filling the air and drowning out the earth's natural resonance.

To the naked eye the planet appears to be the same. But at a cellular level it is the biggest change that life on earth has endured; the affects of which we are just starting to see and feel.

This is fantasic news for Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, EMS first responders. Communiciation is very diffiuclt in the SW part of the county, so this will enhance their abilities to serve (safely) their communities.
