30 January, 2008: "Christie Brinkley Hates Utility Poles"
CHRISTIE Brinkley wants to save the Town of Southampton from ugly telephone poles. The supermodel has launched a petition drive to stop the Long Island Power Authority from putting up new, 48- to 60-foot utility poles rather than underground cables. �They will remove many of our beautiful trees to raise the unsightly poles - miles of them,� she writes in a letter to residents. �Will they withstand a nor�easter? An ice storm? A hurricane? Will our escape route be blocked by a heavy pole?� The petition has drawn more than 2,000 signatures so far, including those of Bruce Weber, Ross Bleckner, Harry Evans and Carl Bernstein.
