wandaw@herald-mail.com Hagerstown Community College officials are negotiating with a company that wants to install a monopole cell tower on the campus. If approved, the tower would resemble a flag pole and could be 60 to 80 feet tall, college president Guy Altieri told the college's board of trustees at a meeting Tuesday. In the fall, HCC was approached by Shenandoah Mobile Co., of Edinburg, Va., about leasing space on campus for the tower, Altieri said. Unlike cell towers of the past, monopole towers are unobtrusive, he said.

tarar@herald-mail.com A 180-foot cell tower proposed for the highest point of South Mountain would disrupt the landscape of Antietam National Battlefield and three other counties, preservationists say. The Maryland Department of Budget and Management wants to erect the tower on Lamb's Knoll. The land is owned by the state Department of Natural Resources, spokeswoman Heather Lynch said. Lamb's Knoll is along the Appalachian Trail on South Mountain, about one mile south of Reno Monument Road between Fox's Gap and Crampton's Gap. Lynch said the tower would service the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems, the National Park Service, 911 communications for Washington and Frederick counties, Maryland Natural Resources Police, the Maryland State Forest and Park Service and Maryland State Police.
