Chamber Area News:
  • During much of the past year, the 3,000 crew members of the USS Kearsarge were deployed in the Middle East. The crew performed exercises with other navies and dropped 86 bombs on Isis targets. We are indebted to them for their hard work and bravery in protecting us. When 11 sailors from the USS Kearsarge visited Warner in late August, they climbed the mountain and cleared brush from the overlooks. The Chamber generously sponsored a luncheon for them, and the pizza, salad, cookies and beverages were a big hit! More info on the visit can be found at chamber member YCN Your Local View! in their news item dated 9/13/16.

  • Member business YCN Now is in a struggle to have TDS carry their WYCU/YCN programming on the TDS new fiber TV service. YCN is currently carried on the TDS analog cable service. YCN has been run around in circles since June. With every passing day that new subscribers are added to their new system YCN looses viewership of YCN News, Game of the Week, Kearsarge Chronicle, Capital Connections and specials like the Kearsarge Chorale concert Thanksgiving week and parades from the New London Hospital Days and Warner Fall Foliage Festival. The problem is that should TDS decide to carry YCN in the first quarter of next year, it still takes another 60 to 90 days to get on the air because of subscriber notification requirements. Please contact TDS at http://info.tdstelecom.com/tdstv/channelrequestform and let them konw that you want YCN Now on their fiber TV service. Thank you for your help, Greg Uhrin, GM & COO, YCN ... Your Local View!
