Typical Franconia Sculpture Park creation

Cell phone coverage in the St. Croix River Valley is spotty at best, so residents cheered the promise of expanded coverage by AT&T. But when it turned out that the 150 ft. tall tower would be visible for three-miles up and down the  river  -- which is a national scenic waterway --  lots of people got really upset.

Even an offer by Franconia Sculpture Park to disguise the offending tower as a sculpture didn't fly. Why? Because it would cost too much said AT&T.

The debate goes on, but before you launch your canoe this spring, read all about it here.
