  1. We constantly have so many issues so let’s finally join together to get results. Here is a partial list of our demands:
    1. We demand well paved roads.
    2. Due to the traffic it creates we demand road work not be done during the day.
    3. Due to keeping children up at night we demand road work not be done at night.
    4. We demand better cell phone service.
    5. We demand cell towers not be located near us.
    Is this really too much to ask?

  2. This is not a Verizon problem. Local PDs have been a target for over a year. TG it wasn’t ransomware like so many others nationwide had to cough up to get back on line. Look it up. This is not a conspiracy theory.
