An old spin on new telecom problems

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:51PM

POULSBO - Trying to plan for the future of telecommunications in Kitsap County isn't an easy feat. Just ask members of the Regional Telecom Committee.

"Suit challenges state to maintain and repair its sub-standard passages. It was only a matter of time.
