Our friend got mauled by dogs while running in Nanawale recently. After skin grafts, she’s out of the hospital. This incident got me thinking about the importance of cell phone signal in Puna. In many places a land line is the only way to call for help.
I’ve been searching punaweb, bic, and the Nanawale site, but it seems there’s an absence of information regarding cell tower plans. I read that one in Leilani was supposed to take place three months ago, but haven’t heard of any progress. There are Nanawale meeting minutes from 2009 alluding to a T-Mobile tower, but no-more-nothing for any updates.
Do you know the scoop?
This guy Jay Bondeson from Punaweb seems to be following this, and I’ll email him next. Seems like an important issue to our community. If you have any ideas on where to point me, I’d be grateful.
