      One of the three concrete towers not built on the original

      transcontinental route is right next to I-70 just west of US-68 near

      Springfield. http://tinyurl. com/ao3yuw

      Another is near Catawba, which is a little off the beaten path of I-70

      about halfway between Springfield and Columbus. The Catawba concrete

      tower was the one that had a 400-ft guyed tower installed next to it.

      Easiest way to get there would be to take OH-56 north from I-70:

      The third concrete tower is in the White Oak section of Cincinnati, at

      the corner of Jessup and Cheviot Roads. http://tinyurl. com/cvsk72

      >> I'm also looking for Hilliard.

      The old Hilliard L5 power feed station is on Hayden Run Rd, just west

      of Avery.

      Aerial photo: http://tinyurl. com/bvos7v [Bird's eve is available as well]

      Take Hilliard Rome Rd north from I-70 and follow it to the north edge

      of town. It will become Main St and later Avery as the road turns

      left at the end of Old Hilliard.

      It's amazing how much development there is around the site.

      Incidentally, for a while the owner listed was the president of Cord

      Camera, a local camera and photo finishing chain. The owner is now

      listed as "6032 Hayden Run Rd LLC," and the address listed still

      matches the Cord Camera headquarters. I have no idea what they do

      with it, but it's listed as a Commercial Warehouse with the Franklin

      County Auditor, though it is now surrounded by residential

      development. Go to the Franklin County Auditors web site at

      http://franklincoun tyoh.metacama. com/do/searchByP arcelId and search

      for parcel ID 272-000336-00. (Sorry, I couldn't figure out a way to

      link to the record directly.)

      Looks like the facility was in service until about 1987 when its

      assessed value peaked at about $725,000. Steve Cordle bought it from

      AT&T in 1995 for $150,000.

        Loved the blind guy who counted heartbeats in the tunnel.
        Akroyd wasnt bad either.
        I remarked to my wife when we saw "War Games" how most of the people in the
        didnt know there was a building on springs across the street in a big hole
        in the ground.
        Still operational today unlike Garden City which is now condos and such.

        Thank you. Very well put.

        One exception to your comment "In a democratic society".

        This is actually a "republic".

        And one statement. Some things are still better not said.
