Cable TV is back on line

After some three and a half days off line in a portion of Brady, Classic Cable returned to normal about 12 noon Tuesday, according to a cable spokesperson. The television reception in parts of south Brady went off the air about 9 p.m. Friday, June 8 when an 18-wheel tractor-trailer rig downed a power line on Burns Street, causing a power and cable TV outage. Electricity returned about 1 a.m. Saturday, but because a part had to be ordered to repair the TV cable, subscribers to Classic Cable in that particular part of town were without cable service for some 87 hours. Reportedly, the repairs were in excess of $100,000. Contrary to early reports by officer Brian McDougal, the driver of the truck has not yet been cited but it could be a possibility in the near future, the police officer said.
