Hi Mike,

Think about what the goal is.  You want everything to move up 
together at the same rate. The big problem is when there is a 
potential difference between different things.

If my feedline passed that close to the utility ground, I would 
certainly ground it (and everything else) there and then try to route 
the feedline (and everything else) into the house along the same 
general path as the power wires. The utility ground is also the 
ground you need to really improve. 

Common point entrances are very desirable.
