These sorts of outages happen enough that it seems someone should ask: "Did the contractor have maps of the location/depth of the electrical lines in this area, or was he just 'flying blind'?"

The area described above is not midtown - it is Old Palo Alto. The contractor (it was actually a city crew replacing sidewalks and curbs) struck the powerline on Seale Avenue, not Coleridge.
The Weekly can not be that short of people that they fail to identify two so very simple elements of the story. Midtown is South of Oregon Expressway.

1-publishes hours after the event-in fact after the power was back on
2-Gets the location wrong
3-Gets the perpetrator wrong
What a joke-hire some competent editors now-or fold
