St. Charles authorities and school officials must balance learning with the student use of cell phones, particularly in emergency situations.
Jennifer Henry recently experienced a textbook example of the debate over whether students should be using cell phones at school. Henry, a communications specialist for the Francis Howell School District, said it happened on Oct. 21 when Hollenbeck Middle School had to be evacuated due to a bomb threat. It turned out to be a false alarm, but students were evacuated while authorities searched the school building. Students went to Central Elementary School and Francis Howell Central High School. A 14-year-old was later turned over to juvenile authorities. Another threat occurred at the school on Oct. 23. When they get worried, parents and students text, Tweet and call each other – with unintended consequences. “The kids get (information…

Continuing discussion from August, the St. Peters Planning and Zoning Commission will vote on a T-Mobile tower
T-Mobile will be back in front of the Planning and Zoning Commission requesting permission to build a cell phone tower in a residential neighborhood. The proposed location of the 80-foot tower is near a water tower on the west side of Universal Drive, south of Willott Road. The location is an R-1 residential area and smack dab in the middle of a neighborhood. Representatives from T-Mobile said the tower would be similar to a utility pole. The proposed location, next to the water tower, is just another place for a utility, according to T-Mobile. The location was chosen, T-Mobile said, because it provided coverage to a residential area where coverage was lacking. Members of the community came out to the Justice Center and all in attendance …

Two towers were discussed at St. Peters Planning and Zoning meeting. One approved and one was sent back to the drawing board.
Two cell phone towers get very different receptions at Wednesday’s Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. The Commission heard proposals for two new telecommunications towers in St. Peters. One tower was approved, while the other was told to come back in September for further discussion. The difference between the two proposed towers boiled down to location. After meeting with the Commission in July, the proposal from St. Charles Tower, Inc. passed inspection from the commission and now just needs approval from the Board of Alderman before the tower can go up. Plans call for the new cell phone tower to be located on the north side of Cloverleaf Drive South, east of Cave Springs Drive in a C-3 commercial district. St. Charles Tower had to…

The St. Charles County Council voted down an attempt to put a cell tower in the Defiance area, a decision that could lead to litigation, said an attorney for the tower company. St. Charles Tower had requested to build the tower near Walnut Creek Trail in the Defiance area.
