Internet, Tyler Sheriff report

By Staff | Jan 8, 2017

MIDDLEBOURNE — Internet service has been spotty to say the least during the past few weeks in parts of the county.

Anyone with questions or comments should call the state’s Public Utility Commission at 1-800-642-8544 and/or to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) at consumercomplaints.fcc.gov.

More about that story will appear in the next edition.

In other news, the sheriff’s department was busy in December, of course they are always busy. Note two reports of drag racing!? Really…

That may make for some interesting writing, reading.
