"owner of that tower never did figure out why it was such a lightning magnet or ever get t grounded properly."

Getting it grounded would have made it even more of a magnet and grounding a tower in a desert environment (T00son is one of the driest environments I've been in) is a lot more easily said than done unless you have the gubbins to bury a metal mesh 2-3 feet down across a couple of acres.
