MILLSTONE - A rotting utility pole has one Millstone resident worried that one more big storm could send it falling into his home.

The pole, which is owned by Verizon, has been showing signs of rotting for months and the owner of the home on Monmouth Road, Bob Nicholas, says he has called at least once a month for almost a year.

Verizon finally relented and installed a new pole, but left the old one standing because the power company's lines were still attached to it.

The power company, JCP&L, says they will move their lines to the new pole soon, but have lashed the old pole to the new pole to keep it from falling for now.

Nicholas says that he is glad the poles are lashed together, but won't feel safe until the old pole is gone for good.
