A PORTION OF THE WCKG ANTENNA GROUND SYSTEM WAS BURIED UNDER THE REAL ESTATE GOVERNED BY THIS EASEMENT (THE TRANSMITTER SITE IS IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE JUNCTION OF THE RONALD REAGAN MEMORIAL TOLLWAY (I-88) AND THE TRI-STATE TOLLWAY (I-204).

ROAD CONSTRUCTION AUTHORIZED BY THE ITHA TAKING PLACE THIS SUMMER HAS TAKEN PLACE ON AND ADJACENT TO OUR EASEMENT AND HAS RESULTED IN SUBSTANIAL DAMAGE TO OUR ANTENNA SYSTEM, WHICH HAS IN TURN RESULTED IN DAMAGE TO THE WCKG TRANSMITTER. AS A RESULT, WE HAVE TEMPORARILY DISCONTINUED BROADCASTS OVER WCKG UNTIL THE ITHA CONSTRUCTION HAS BEEN COMPLETED AND WE CAN MAKE REPAIRS TO OUR GROUND SYSTEM AND TRANSMITTER.

THE PUBLIC INTEREST, CONVENIENCE AND NECESSITY WOULD BE SERVED BY A GRANT OF THE REQUESTED SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORIZATION.
