A cell phone tower on Lodi High School's campus could help fund the school's athletic programs and pull in money for other Lodi Unified schools to use at their discretion.

"We have started the most preliminary of negotiations," said Art Hand, assistant superintendent of facility planning at the district, pertaining to the addition of the tower.

    ALL of the research actually states that cell towers are safe... which studies are you reading?

    there is plenty of research that shows that these cell towers are radiating toxic cancer causing materials. SAY NO! Do the research. Very scary

    Get rid of those "pottyble" buildings and build real buildings with that money. Or at least lockers would be a great start and new ESL teachers.

    I sub all over LUSD and the portables usually have the best hvac systems. In the main buildings you can not always adjust your temperature. I've been in several portables out in "the village" at LHS, and I've had no problems. And I do agree, start with the communications systems... at every school.

    Ms. Cassel: where did your learn or hear of cell towers making people ill or causing health problems? How did you get elected to, of all things, a school board?

    This money should be used to improve the whole school..not just athletics. The intercom system needs to be replaced...start there!

    I am confused. Why will this money be going to fund sports instead of simply augmenting the general fund? We have kids shivering in portables, this money should go towards new buildings, not recreation.

    this is a no brainer...put it up and improve lodi high's sports facilities....what are you waiting for? why do the revenues have to be shared with the district

    I think it is a great idea too Coach Knack! It's all about "revenue enhancement" for the high schools. Sports, debate, band, etc all need cash to further our kids edcation experience. In hindsight, was Prop 13 a good deal approx 30yrs later? Sometimes I'm not so sure.
