Parks Wants Cell Tower to Blend In

Yellowstone National Park, WY – Yellowstone National Park wants a communications company to shorten and camouflage its 100-foot cell phone tower near Old Faithful. Critics say the tower spoils the flavor of the Old Faithful area, and should be removed. Yellowstone spokeswoman Cheryl Matthews says park officials want the silver-colored tower shortened by 20 feet, and painted to blend in with the area. She says Western Wireless has shown a willingness to work with the Park Service to address their concerns.
