More Valley Cell Coverage?

Published by under Local News Affairs

A new cell phone tower?  For Cuchara?  After several years of asking for improved cell phone signal coverage we may soon have our wishes granted three-fold.  Six months ago La Veta approved cell antenna panels from CommNet.  That mostly helped our AT&T coverage. Then just 10 days ago the Mayor announced that Alltel has been granted similar antennas approval.  Now how about  Verizon?

 Well last week, the Huerfano County Planning Commission approved a 60 ft. mono-pole cell tower by CommNet Wireless to be located adjacent to the Cuchara Water Sanitation District tank in Pinehaven.  Business leaders,  Emergency Agencies and Cuchara residents applauded the Planning Commission approval.  The Signature reports that it will handle multiple signals for Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T.   Final approval is expected to be granted this week by the County Commissioners at their June 17 Meeting.

Cell Phones

Published by under General Information

More changes in the area include our cell phone service providers. The recent cell phone antenna at La Veta Town Lakes helped the signal reception for some carriers more than others. Mayor Schmidt has announced that Alltel will be putting an antenna on the other water tower as well.  But we now hear that after Verizon just acquired Alltel, now AT&T is acquiring Verizon. Stay tuned for signal updates.

Economic Forecasts

Published by under General Information

from National Association of Realtors…

Forecasters Say Recession Nearing End
More than 90 percent of economists think the recession is nearing its end, but they don’t expect the economy to soar anytime soon.

Nearly 75 percent of economists, surveyed by the National Association for Business Economics, say that the recession will end in the third quarter. Another 19 percent think the turnaround will come in the fourth quarter. The rest are betting on the first quarter of 2010.

Americans seem to believe that things are getting better too. The Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index rose 14.1 points in May to 54.9, the second month in a row in which there have been an increase.

Forecasters say that home sales will bottom out in the second quarter, an important stabilizing factor.
