ATT Bald Hills cell tower balloon test
July 16, 2014

From the Bald Hills Free Group:
The Bald Hills Free Group has advised that Cascadia PM (representing AT&T) has decided not to go ahead with the proposed cell tower on Weyerhaeuser parcel #23505000000.

This was confirmed by Linda Doucette, Board President of Clearwood Community and Noah Grodzin of Cascadia PM (representing AT&T).

The topography of the land (too steep) has been cited as reason for stopping the project. So far, no application permit has been submitted . However, we remain vigilant of any changes in this process. If you would like to understand better where this decision might come from visit our website:

Canadians warned about traveling to US with cash

"Canadian Government Warns Citizens To Not Carry Large Amounts Of Cash Into The US Due To Cash-hungry Cops"

"On its official website, the Canadian government informs its citizens that 'there is no limit to the amount of money that you may legally take into or out of the United States.' Nonetheless, it adds, banking in the U.S. can be difficult for non-residents, so Canadians shouldn’t carry large amounts of cash.

That last bit is excellent advice, but for an entirely different reason than the one Ottawa cites.

There’s a shakedown going on in the U.S., and the perps are in uniform.

Across America, law enforcement officers — from federal agents to state troopers right down to sheriffs in one-street backwaters — are operating a vast, co-ordinated scheme to grab as much of the public’s cash as they can; 'hand over fist,' to use the words of one police trainer," quoting Neil Macdonald, CBC News.
