Ode to A Road:

'O mud pit
'O puddle riddled bumps that reel
No matter how you turn your wheel
'O brave toiling travellers of the night
'O time it takes to make it right
Stay strong, o slammed and rattled cars
Remember that we've come so far
'O spirits and fenders dented
'O tires and moods punctured
Ho! To the journey and the journeyers
Bless us with silence and paved surfaces
For now, a beer at the Merc suffices

I love you all
Whatta trip!
and Shekinah the Honda

Road Delays:

As we mentioned previously, these schedules will continue to be revised as work is completed, materials are delivered, and schedules are updated. The latest schedules will be emailed and posted on the Town’s website. Please see the revised schedule below for delays.
REVISED: Lower Main Street
DEI is completing the storm sewer construction on Lower Main Street. After that, they will need about a week to make the final grade and place the road base.

DELAYS for road construction from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm
     Tuesday 8/26 - Saturday 8/30
     Tuesday 9/2 - Friday 9/5
REVISED: 12th Street (Above Mesa St)
DELAYS for road construction from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm
     Tuesday 8/26 - Saturday 8/30 – Culvert installation and road construction
     Tuesday 9/2 - Friday 9/5 – Culvert installation and road construction
REVISED: Ward Street
DEI will pour the top slab of the box culvert this week. After the pour, the concrete will need to cure for 1-2 weeks. Once the concrete is strong enough to hold traffic, DEI will begin final grading of Ward Street. The final roadway grading could require some road closures. Velocity is beginning work on the permanent repairs to the Water Treatment Plant. They are proposing to work M-F only right now. Construction should extend through November. Expect DELAYS on Ward Street caused by Velocity.

DELAYS for culvert construction from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm

There are a few homes/land newly on the Market in the area. If you're curious, have a look at a few of my listings here: http://www.davidmans.com/listings.htm Thanks!

Wood up for grabs: 4-8 pieces of 2' x 8' planks and some smaller boards; a few nice bark-covered pieces about 3' x 1"; some pieces of posts. All could be used in a building project, or cut up for firewood. My landline is not functioning (thank you Century Link!) but you can stop by Sunday morning between 9:oo - 11:00 am, or Monday afternoon. If I'm not home, the wood is under the carport, in a hanging holder, and there is some resting against the carport railing. Help yourself/selves!

I've recently been advised to undergo a dental gum/teeth deep cleaning procedure called Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy. I would appreciate comments from anyone familiar with this treatment as to its efficacy. It is expensive.
09:35 AM MT(US)
File a complaint with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission if Century link has not been providing the services you pay for. They should be out of businesses for pure breach of contract IMHO. Please don't let them get away with not servicing 'last mile' customers.

I've filed 2 myself the last 2 years. There is power in numbers. Your complaints, all justified.

Jon, I have your package from Fedx. Ward St was closed.

When we moved back, our phone did not work after it was supposedly 'switched on'. I had to make an appointment with a technician, but had incredible difficulty getting through to a human being to do this. Finally, when I got through, an appointment was scheduled! Viola! I had to take a day off of work so they could come sometime between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and noon, but no later than 5:00 p.m. But, sometime before that appointment, my phone began working! Unfortunately, because it is so hard to reach a human being, I could not inform anyone at Century Link that my phone was now working. However, there were still some computer issues so I thought, all right, go ahead and come. Imagine my chagrin when I saw the Century Link truck drive by my house on the day of the scheduled appointment without stopping! I couldn't get out the door fast enough to stop them. My internet seems to be working now, anyway.

Yes, Kevin, for being in the communications business, they sure seem to have trouble with communication. Until you get a hallowed Technician! If you ever get the number for a tech, do not throw that number away! Save it for later, when you are sure to need it again.

Latest from Century Link.
We got a telephone call from from CL asking if our telephone was working! Unfortunately Sylvia answered the call and said "yes". She missed two good answers: "No" and "Only the one on Porphyry, not the one on 12th Street".

A little history about our phone problems and Century Link as I know it. I called them from the Merc on Wednesday around 6:00 PM. I was very careful to explain that most of the south side of JT was out, even though they kept insisting that I give them my address. They couldn't find my address on Porphyry View in their records. They insisted I was on 12th street. I insisted I was on Porphyry View. Anyway, they said the problem would be fixed within 24 hours. (6:00 PM Thursday).

To make sure, I called Thursday morning, went through the same argument about my address, and was told the phones would be fixed by 11:00 PM on Friday. The woman stood her ground and insisted it would be Friday.

Yesterday around 4:00 PM I was driving up 12th street toward my home and saw a Century Link truck at the side of the road with a very confused looking driver. I got suspicious and asked him what he was looking for. It was my house on a non-existant address on 12th Street. He had partial information from my first call. He had my name and phone number and my wrong address. But he didn't know the phones were out on Mesa.

Century Link is in the commumications business.

PS: Hey CL -- I live on Porphyry View.

Thanks, Tara! It was fun getting a bucket if ice water dumped on my head in your place. Besides, I think I was a rather convincing stunt double for you. Cowboy hard hat? Check! Megaphone? Check! Flannel shirt, clipboard and EMS vest? Check!

Re: Century Link

I have escalated this within Century Link. There is a technician currently on his way to Jamestown to investigate the 3 service tickets they've received. They haven't received any alarms, which is apparently unusual when there's a big problem affecting multiple customers. I will receive an update before the end of the day today based on the technician's trip to Jamestown. Hopefully by then everything will be resolved. I will continue to share as I receive updates from Century Link. Please let me know when your service is restored.

Does anyone have a ticket number for the Century Link outage? Please email me at mayor@jamestownco.org.

Hi there, Jamestown Folks--I am not sure if this is the place to post this, but I want to offer my support…Post flood, I'm still hearing about a lot going on in your neck of the woods and wanted to let you know that I'm offering in-home play therapy and individual counseling services, meaning that I would come to you rather than you having to come to Boulder (I cruise around with a big suitcase of toys when I work with children). If you think you might be interested, you can call me at 720-984-1207, email me at mountaingen@gmail.com, or check out mountainfamilyhometherapy.com.

I'm actively working to escalate the issue within Century Link. I will keep you posted as I'm able to get more information. The Town Hall will also have the latest information I have.

08:34 AM MT(US)
Hi Tara,

The phones went out around 3:30 pm yesterday. From talking to people it sounds like the problem is along west Mesa west of the school and then everyone above Mesa up to the Meisners.

I was probably one of the first to call it in from the school which is working. Support was not too responsive but it is in their system under my phone for my house. But obviously it's an area issue.

I am working online from Vic and Kathleen's so I have access to email if you need more information.
08:30 AM MT(US)
If anyone is coming up to Jimtown from boulder today before 5 and could stop to pick up a 13$ bearing from orielly's I would pay you back upon arrival and sing your praises, literally if you like.

Re CenturyLink, are they really saying that it will take until the 5th? Did they diagnose the problem?
I’m guessing Sen. Bennet’s visit tomorrow is a photo op. Maybe some messaging (to the Senator’s staff and to press) could be, “We’ve been making remarkable progress with the recovery, but we suffered a setback yesterday when CenturyLink’s services failed for half the town, and we were told by the company's representatives that it would take over a week to restore phone and internet service.”
