The often proposed and much debated 100′ cell tower for the southern Bald Hills area near the Clearwood Community has moved closer to fruition with a balloon test scheduled for July 16. This follows similar tests near Lake Lawrence and Bald Hills/Smith Prairie junction areas previously covered here.
