Investigating - The 600-pair phone cable which provides traditional analog telephone service to Milne, Newton, Greene, the guest rooms at the Big Tree Inn, and the ISC has been damaged as part of the effort to move cables out of the way of the project work at the north end of Erwin. We are investigating the scope of damage now. Emergency phones, elevator phones and fax lines may all be out of service, as well as the phones in the guest rooms at the Tree.
