Valor Telecom offers tips the lion's tale to consider before digging IRVING - Whether it's in Wolf- forth or Abernathy, West Texans love to get outside during the summer and plant flower beds and trees or install a new fence or a backyard pool. Unfortunately, this upsurge in home improvement activity can also result in increased telephone service disruptions due to line cuts. In addition to silence when attempting to use telephones, line cuts can result in Internet, alarm sys- tems, and even 911 disruptions. This past year, for example, a cable cut by a construction crew in Wolfforth resulted in telephone service outages for approximately 12 hours. "We're always concerned with customer safety, just more so in the summertime because property development activity can soar in the warmer weather. And with that can come a greater risk for injury or damage as homeowners and busi- nesses come in closer proximity to underground utility lines," said Danny Ammons, vice-president of operations for VALOR Telecom's West Texas division. VALOR Telecom experiences some type of facility damage every day in Texas, and this damage can result in loss of service to any of the company's 108 serving areas in the western portion of the state. Beyond the safety concerns, dig- ging that results in major property damage or physical injury can mean a federal fine of $50,000. So, before digging outdoors this summer, VALOR offers these tips: Contact the Texas One Call Center at 1-800-245-4545 to locate underground utilities at least two business days prior to digging. Have the underground util- ity lines clearly marked. Give the marked lines a wide berth when dig- ging nearby. A minimum distance of two feet or more is best. Dig only in calm, dry weather since the combination of surface moisture, lightning, and exposed lines can prove dangerous to people, digging equipment, and the lines themselves. Clarendon Lions Club held their regular Tuesday noon meet- ing August 3, 2004, with Boss Lion Monty Hysinger in charge. We had 20 members and one guest: Ashlee Kidd, guest of Lion Roger Estlack.
