News number disrupted
Hurricane Sandy has flooded some of the phone lines for the Mt. Pleasant News!
The toll-free number for the News, Mt. Pleasant Shopper and www.mpnews.net is out of service because of flooding that damaged New York City-based equipment for the News’ long distance phone carrier. The carrier, Pioneer Telephone, reports technicians are working to restore service as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, calls to the News still can be made via (319) 385-3131 as well as (319) 986-5186. Customers with Caller ID who receive calls from News staff members may notice a variety of numbers, as outgoing calls from the News building have required some alternative numbers be used.
“We apologize for any inconvenience,” says Bill Gray, News publisher. “Don’t forget that you also can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
