Cut line interrupts Verizon service
By Jeanette Johnson
WORLAND – Depending on what provider they are with,
Wyoming cell phone users awoke Thursday morning to no service due to
problems in Montana during the night.
Shortly after 12 noon, a ping on the cell phones notified users they were back on line.
According to Verizon Wireless Specialist Sarah Lynema in Worland, a line was cut in Big Timber, Mont. around 3 a.m. She and her co-workers were notified of the problem through WiFi. The company was hoping the network would be back up and running by 10 a.m., but the time came and went without success.
Lynema said the store employees received notification the same way customers did.
Shortly after opening the store at 9 a.m. people began coming in to find out why their phones didn’t work. Some said they were late for work because they rely on their cell phones as alarms, Lynema said. She estimated 20 customers had been at the store’s location by 10 a.m.
The service for Blue Wire/AT&T was not interrupted as a result of the problem, Store Manager Jaci Schmidt said.
Tire shop to expand into former dealership
WORLAND – Plans are in progress for Frontier Tire &
Alignment to expand the business by moving part of the shop work into
the former Big West AutoPlex location north of the current shop.
According to Frontier owner Jeff Dorr, the work will include cutting areas on the south side of the former auto dealership building to install more bay doors. Work on smaller vehicles will be done in the new location, he said.
“We’ll do the big stuff here,” Dorr said, indicating the present location.
He’s hoping to have the new facility open by the first of July. It will include a grand opening at some point, he said.
“It’s exciting,” he said.
The added space will allow them more ease and speed of operation to get customers in and out, he said. He also plans to expand the truck tire line and farm line.
