Wondering if you have talked to AT&T about the lack of working cell service? We’ve been out of service for all but a couple minutes here & there every few days... for about a week. After hours on the landline - being told over & over there’s no service problem... beginning around the 10th... We were suddenly told it was a cell tower problem that would be fixed within 3 days, by the 13th. After another hour yesterday on a landline - was told there was no report about a tower problem. Until suddenly when I requested a supervisor - suddenly the report was found. It wasn’t going to be to be fixed until the 16th. I know of people throughout Holley & Brownsville who have no service.
So great to see our beautiful Lewis Creak County Park filled to near capacity! Who Knew! Seriously the only parking left was the upper lot. Really got to hand it to the crew taking care of this incredible local resource.
Bystander saves runaway motor home at Main and Holley. This just happened. We were turning right from Holley onto Main when we see a motor home going backwards diagonally across the intersection in front of us. It apparently came from the parking lot of the Swan restaurant. It rolled at a good clip. bystander on the corner in front of the medical center dashed out and opened the driver door. As he tried to swing up into the driver seat he was blocked by a Great Dane and another smaller dog, apparently wondering what the fuss was about. I can only guess they knocked out of park. The hero stopped the coach just before it hit the curb. It looked undamaged and just missed the traffic light pole by a foot or two. We pushed our hearts back down out our mouth and drove on. Thank you, Anonymous
