The court battle between the city of La Cañada Flintridge and Sprint Company over the rejection by the city of two cell phone towers on aesthetic grounds is back in district court, after an adverse ruling for the city from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal. In January of last year, the 9th circuit rejected a lower court ruling in favor of La Cañada, then refused a request from the city for a rehearing and sent the matter back to the district court level for rehearing. According to city attorney Mark Steres, the case remains in limbo, pending further action from attorney for Sprint.

LCF vs. Sprint I wish to express my thanks for all your coverage of the case of Sprint v. La Cañada. It should be noted that the public record on this case includes the following: 1) Sprint's representations of a coverage "gap" were refuted in the City Council Hearings. The areas that Sprint had represented as having no coverage actually were accessible to the existing basic Sprint network at the time. These "dead zones" were originally noted in yellow areas noted on the maps provided by Sprint in their permit applications.

La Cañada Flintridge officials are huddling with attorneys following Tuesday's decision by a federal appeals court that the City Council had overstepped the law when a few years ago it denied the installation of two Sprint PCS cell phone towers on the basis of aesthetics. The precedent-setting decision, which made headlines across the nation and sent news vans scrambling into La Cañada this week, has potentially far-reaching effects, with municipalities and wireless telecommunications firms alike already struggling over just what restrictions can legally be placed on future cell tower installations.

The La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation had already blown past its financial goal for this year's Jog-A-Thon before the second phase of the event was held last week. La Cañada High School 7/8 students ran, jogged or walked in the second half of the Educational Foundation's Jog-A-Thon on Friday. La Cañada Unified School District's elementary schools hosted their own events on Nov. 17. The Foundation's goal for this year's two-phase Jog-A-Thon was to raise $180,000 and break the previous Jog-A-Thon record of $179,000, which was set last year.

It?s not often that a person really enjoys running for the sake of running, and even less frequent that said runner has a real talent in speed and endurance. So it is really quite lucky when a high school cross-country team finds itself full of quick, smart runners. La Cañada High School seems to be enjoying that luck this season. The Spartan boys? team banded together last Saturday at Crescenta Valley Park to take first place in Division II at the 40th Annual Staub/Barnes Cross Country Invitational.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last week that wireless providers cannot seek monetary damages and legal fees from cities if denied a permit for a cell phone antenna, as La Cañada Flintridge prepares for a court battle with a telecommunications firm over a similar permit. In a 9-0 ruling last Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled that a Rancho Palos Verdes man could not seek monetary damages from the coastal city over its denial of a 52-foot antenna he used for HAM radio braodcasts.

Last week, a federal appeals court overturned one of our cell tower ordinances. Adding insult to injury, the decision was described by the wire services as striking down "a Los Angeles suburb's regulations that had barred Sprint PCS from installing two cell phone towers for aesthetic reasons." As if losing is not enough, we are now an upscale "Los Angeles suburb." The implication is that we think too highly of ourselves to willy-nilly install ugly cell towers, hazardous above-ground bunkers and buzzing electrical equipment next to our children's bedrooms.
