TEMPORARY EMPLOYEES WORK TO REPAIR PHONE LINES

Oct. 22, 2002 – Innovative Telephone's temporary employees worked through the morning Tuesday to repair yet more damage inflicted on St. Croix telephone lines, this time late Monday night in the Negro Bay area near the Randall "Doc" James Racetrack.
On St. John at least a half dozen customers in the Coral Bay area said they were experiencing phone trouble on Tuesday, but Innovative Telephone spokesman Thomas Dunn said no acts of vandalism were reported there.
Dunn said Tuesday afternoon that the St. Croix damages had been repaired.
More than 8,000 telephone customers have been without service at some point since 310 Innovative Telephone and Innovative Cable employees went on strike three weeks ago.
While police and the FBI are investigating the sabotage, the vandals have left few clues as to their identity, St. Croix Deputy Police Chief Angel Santos said Monday. Santos asked that anyone with information about the matter contact police.
