SIDE STREETS: Resident doesn't trust Utilities' smart meters

Craig Warren, 46, recently entered into a disagreement with Colorado Springs Utilities after he removed their Smart Meter in favor of an analog meter. Warren believes the digital meter lets out cellular bursts 100-1000 times as powerful as a cell phone signal and does not want his four-year-old son, who sleeps in the room next to the meter, exposed to that signal.
