Susquehanna County Republicans joined other GOP voters in the 10th Congressional District who turned the other cheek last Tuesday while giving incumbent Congressman Don Sherwood a victory in the county over Kathy Scott, his strongest ever primary election competitor.
Several Harmony Road residents were present at the May 15 meeting of the Great Bend Township Board of Supervisors to discuss concerns with the possible siting of a cell tower in close proximity to their homes. The supervisors had received a letter, signed by six residents, outlining their concerns about the (possible) cell tower; it was said that their neighbor is in the process of leasing the site for construction of one, about fifty feet from his property line. The supervisors were asked to consider enacting an ordinance to prohibit such towers within 500 to 1,000 feet from neighboring property lines. The residents’ concerns were that the tower would impact neighboring property values by decreasing them, that it is an eyesore that would block the view of the otherwise scenic area, and that there could be a health hazard from electro magnetic waves. On resident pointed out that not enough is known about them, whether people would find out years down the road that they are a hazard. And, there was a more practical question; would the tower’s proximity to homes affect TV and phone reception? Supervisor Bob Squier noted that a tower would be a hazard if it were to be placed in such close proximity to residences; were it to fall, it could cause considerable damage. Another resident said that he had spoken with someone with the state Game Commission about having a tower sited on the game lands; the individual he spoke with expressed interest (property owners generally receive monthly “rent” for usage of their land for towers).
