Kennebec Telephone Company may be a small independent telephone company but according to South Dakota Public Utilities Commissioner Bob Sahr they are a progressive company.

Sahr along with PUC commissioner Dusty Johnson and Federal Communications Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein spoke at a community picnic hosted by Kennebec Telephone Wednesday, August 25th at the Kennebec firehouse. The stop at Kennebec was part of a two-day tour through South Dakota by FCC commissioner Adelstein.
Adelstein was impressed with the telephone companys commitment to make high speed internet service available to nearly all their customers including those in the rural area around Kennebec and Presho. Rod Bowar, general manager of Kennebec Telephone, estimated that 22% of the companys customers currently subscribe to high speed internet.

[b]Utility truck tips over[/b]

Posted by Nicole
Thursday afternoon an utility truck being used to drill holes for new light poles along highway 248 through Presho tipped over on its side.

According to Kevin Logan of Logan Electric, Gettysburg, the owner of the truck, workmen had moved the boom into position to order to move to the next drill site. The weight of the boom apparently settled causing the truck to gradually tip to the right. No one was near the truck when it slowly went over onto its side. The incident happened near the Coachlight Inn driveway.

A crane was brought into town on Friday and the truck was set back up by late afternoon. According to Logan the truck did not suffer any mechanical damage but sustained approximately $ 5,000 in body damage.
