For the last two weeks, as far as I can tell, Suddenlink service has be going off for long periods of time. This includes internet, land line telephone, and sporadic TV outages. The areas that seem affected are large and seem mostly West of Mc Lane Rd. Forget calling the customer service telephone number. You will get on a circular path of robo commands that leads back to the beginning. (I believe it goes to Texas). Anyway, I went to the local office and found many others there asking the same questions. Suddenlinks answer is that a lightning strike about two weeks ago near Rumsey Park fried a "service node" (#16 I think) They have replaced it several times and added amplifiers? Yet it still continues to fail ongoing for reasons they have not as yet figured out. They calculate YOUR service outage by the hours down. So far it's at about 49 hours. I asked about a credit on my bill for outage time. They said customers would receive a credit on their service bill? Unknown when this ongoing outage problem will be totally solved or when you will get your credit reimbursement.
OH NO! SAY IT AIN'T SO........
This was posted today, Tuesday (6-16-2015) as response to a letter to the editor in the Roundup Newspaper by a Mr. Paul Frommelt.
Having lived in a "college town" (Flagstaff) I don't want to live anywhere near a University! It's comparable to living near a military base. But there is hope. I have received communication from the ASU office of president Crow that states they have "no timetable" for ANY decision. I also received from Ann Weaver Hart, president of U of A "they have no interest" in building a campus here. So what are we being sold here? With the budget cuts given to the state universities, I see little possibility in the near future for them investing here. Perhaps it's time to cut our losses and find a plausible plan for prosperity for our community. Think JOBS, and not just a degree.
Want to put a dent in the drug abuse problem? Institute mandatory, unannounced, random drug testing for "all" elected officials. Town, County, City, State, Federal. And make public the positive results as to what substance is being used.
Thanks for the update Mr. Frommelt. That is more information than we have received from the Mayor, RCEA, RCEF, MHA, SLE, and Aspire Organizations. Maybe they have the same inquiry results that you do, but don't want to make them public!
Tom, a suggestion if I may. Would it be possible to create a new thread design on the blog daily topics forum that is generic about posted Citizen questions/comments on the proposed University Project? Water issues, Town Government? Something that is titled so that it is ongoing about a specific topic. This thread topic has reached 130 comments so far and it may be more than a lot of people are willing to read through to get to what part interests them specifically. And it's mixed between the college and water issues. No intent to usurp your thread and topics which are all very interesting and appreciated along with all the comments. All the best.
Take a drive over to 308 E. Aero Dr. and take a look. There is only one small office structure there with a sign on it. "Mogollon Health Alliance". No visible doing business sign is there for the "Rim Country Educational Alliance" organization and it's board (they just use a PO Box 3342, a phone number, and a web site). No doing business sign located there for the "Rim Country Educational Foundation" who lists 308 E. Aero Dr. as their business office address. And, no visible doing business sign is there for the "Aspire Foundation" who also use 308 E. Aero Dr. as their business address. Boy, between all those separate non profit fund raising foundations being located there, boards of directors, volunteer's, computers, hard copy records, documents, and separate phone lines to run each entity, it must be terribly crowded.
Coincidence? The local "ASPIRE FOUNDATION" uses the same business address as the Rim Country Educational Foundation. 308 E. Aero Dr., Payson AZ 85541 ????
Kathie, Wow, you are on top of it. Thank you for this revelation. All these so called fund a University non-profit groups here seem to have a nexus of agenda and individuals, and financials. This ASPIRE, Bartlett, Rim Club connection deserves much closer scrutiny. How many freaking acronym groups are yet to come? SLE, MHA, RCEA, RCEF, ASPIRE and on and o. This deal has more local incest relationships in it than Woody what's his name.
