Standing almost 170 feet high, the small town's only water tower, four-legged and speckled by red corrosion, might soon disappear unless officials can wrangle $450,000 to bolster its aching structure.

Too strapped to afford such an expense at present, the city's mayor, Peter Rust, said the answer might emanate from the tower's peak, where three cellular telephone antennae reach toward the clouds.
