“Flying squirrels” caused phone problems at Hillside

The phone ser­vice provider for Hill­side Coun­try Liv­ing has given a rea­son why the facil­ity has had phone issues over the last year.

Notes in a Fron­tier Com­mu­ni­ca­tions repair ticket blames the prob­lems on “fly­ing squirrels.”

Regional gen­eral man­ager Dick Hutchin­son claims squir­rels and mice often cause tech­ni­cal difficulties.

Hill­side direc­tor Mar­cia Hauer says fol­low­ing last month’s cable repairs, the facil­ity has not expe­ri­enced any ser­vice interruptions.

Hauer and main­te­nance chief Art Chupp told county com­mis­sion­ers last month that they endured at least nine such out­ages over a 14-month span.

The two of them cited an uptick in the out­ages in October.
