The Huron County Sheriff's Office was without 9-1-1 and telephone service for two hours Monday.

This is the second time this has happened in recent months, much to the chagrin of Sheriff Dane Howard.

A story about this subject was published in Tuesday's Reflector.

Dang, the title of this article. Was it written by a 3rd grader. Wow.

I bet he wasn't happy. That means he actually had to get off his butt and do something!

Brock Lee

may forgot to pay the phone bill

You maybe on to something there. That money he's been blowing had to come from somewhere.

Dusty

I'm sure he had Lon Burton fix that to!

More importantly is ...How did this happen ? Dont Blame him. Cmon folks . Use this as a good forum ..not childish rants.

What if you were hurt and needed 911..thats whats important here.What if your child was. Lets get to the nitty gritty of how and why .. I mean most of us dont lose phone service unless there is a storm or an accident that took out a pole. Something is fishy ..you bet ..but lets find out what !!!!!

According to the NR. (You know the paper you used to have to go out and get daily.) The 911 calls where sent to another dispatcher in this case Norwalk PD.(If that makes you feel any safer) lol. Besides most law enforcement officials have access to radios. Well except for few of the Sheriff cars as we seen this past week. And if your hurt call the EMTs that's all the police do any ways.

What are the odds? On October First the Reflector publishes a story on how the Sheriff needs more money then as luck would have it they release a story on October Second about the 911 call center fiasco. Poor Sheriff not having a good week and it only been Seventy Two hours.

Have you ever tried to look up their budget it no where that not good

Raziels Wings

what sucks is ..the law seems to think they are above the law..Ive never trusted any cops!!

signersdecendant

OH here he goes again! Tonight's 10/4 paper He hires a new deputy, no money for cruisers, no money for phones, and yet we are hiring new people. He will be asking for more than 4.7 Million Dollars, you can bet! Can we recall our votes for Sheriff? You bet I will not even vote on the line for Sheriff this year, even if he is running unopposed! Gimme Dane More $$ is out of CONTROL AND OUT OF $$ FOR HIS BUDGET!!!

Dusty

I seen the article some girl from New London. Probley I nice girl but that wouldn't be my first choice for a Deputy in times like these. Kinda young and Green they'll spend of lot of time backing her up regardless of how bad she thinks she is.

Dusty

Are you kidding? He really has another deputy? Where is he getting the money for this?

yogi bear

maybe if our wonderful sheriff stop taking 911 funds from ema to pay his dispatchwers they would have the money to upgrade 911.

I should run against him .....I have no experience but I think I could do a better job.
