The Ohio senator said this was ”an enormous foul-up that is a disservice to campers instead of a service." James Rossie, vicepresident of the firm and general manager of the Cedar Rapids operation, has admitted that there were initial problems since the service was “popular beyond all expectations.” “Settling Down” He said last week, however, that business appeared to be “settling down” following a big rush for camp sites over the July 4 holiday. Rossie also said news releases announcing the service were issued before his firm was prepared to handle telephone calls.
