An elderly Manhattan couple died in Andes on May 3, following a minor car accident at the bottom of their 60-foot driveway. Though they desperately tried to get help by placing nine cell- phone calls, help didn’t arrive in time, because there was no cell signal. The circumstances of their disaster attracted extensive coverage from New York City news media. “Learning that numerous 911 calls failed due to poor cellular coverage worsened the loss,” wrote their grandson Jeantet Fields, on his blog, fieldsnet.com. Fields, who is a technology instructor, said he bought his grandmother the cell phone on an AT&T plan to use in case of emergencies..

The new budget is $29,000 less than the current one.
