Murr files bill to investigate repairs on phone service

BY LOGAN HARRISON

 

State Rep. Andrew Murr, R-Junction, recently filed House Bill 1466, legislation that will force telecommunications companies to own up to their responsibilities to timely repair damaged telephone infrastructure and restore basic communication services following a disaster or emergency.

This bill comes in direct response to the lack of any reasonable response to repair and restore basic landline service to parts of the Hill Country following historic flooding that occurred throughout much of the Llano River Basin in October 2018.

Towering above

A new cellphone tower is now part of the Ozona skyline after being installed Monday.

The 199-foot tower, located in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express at 1308 Avenue E, is owned by Communications Tower Group LLC, according to a public notice that was printed in the Aug. 28, 2018 edition of The Ozona Stockman.

Communications Tower Group is the owner and developers of the tower and will lease space on the carriers for coverage in the area, said Erik Brooks, wireless site developer for Communications Tower Group.

“Our towers are basically open for all carriers to go on, which would improve the carrier coverage in the region,” said Communications Tower Group Vice President Rob Sandburg.

The future of Ozona High School?

The future of the structures of Ozona High School, and moving forward toward a possible school bond, were all discussed at the Jan. 23 Crockett County CCSD School Board meeting.

The presentation, made by Steve Risser, of Gallagher Construction based in Richardson, Texas, showed different options for Ozona High School’s Main Building and Auditorium, as well as other buildings on the campus.

Risser and his staff toured all the OHS Buildings and found the same issues in each building needing plumbing, electrical, roofing and flooring work and upgrades, as well as needing to be up to code on ADA compliance and statewide building codes.

Will 2019 be the year of the turbine? Wind energy continues to surge in Texas

PORTLAND, Texas — Texas continues to be a force in wind energy, despite a downturn in investment and tariffs on the materials used to make the equipment.

And if a report by the federal government is any indicator, there’s growth potential for wind in oil country in the new year.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration this month released its projections for 2019.

It said a total of 10.9 GW of wind capacity is expected to come online nationally in 2019, most of it near the end of the year. Three states — Texas, Iowa, and Illinois — will be home to more than half of the wind capacity additions for the year.
