COMM TOWER GONE – Gary Harmon of Henderson, Ky., worked to disassemble the old communications tower on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Martin Thursday. Harmon works with AllState Tower. Woods Communication out of Union City and Weakley County Municipal Electric also worked on the project. The 350-ft tower has been in use since the 1960s. The tower was located near the intersection of Moody and Hurt streets, across from the steam plant. The new tower was put into place in 2011 to ensure emergency communications would be transmitted during an outage.
