Southside residents may get a shock in their electric bills next summer.
(-------------)
[VO-NAT]


The city of Danville just entered a new contract to buy wholesale electricity from A-E-P and the result will be a big increase for consumers.
Danville officials expect a 40 percent increase for residential customers, a 50 percent hike for commercial accounts and a 60 percent increase for the industries that are city's largest power consumers.
That means a 60 dollar residential bill will jump to 84 bucks.
The increases will show up in city bills next August.
The agency that negotiated Danville's new contract also facilitated new contracts for Martinsville, Bedford, Salem, Radford and the Botetourt-Craig Co-Op, but it's not clear if rates in those communities will rise as well.

Chad:
Cooper spent over a month in the hospital, losing nearly 60 pounds, going from 220 to 160. Eventually, the redshirt senior made a stunning recovery, playing in 13 games in 2002. He has worked his way back up to 205 pounds, but would like to get to 215. Cooper is currently 2nd on the depth chart at the mike linebacker spot, and a major contributor on Frank Beamer's special teams. But since his illness, he's had to re-evaluate his goals.
Chad: Keith:
Travis: Cooper's story is not all that different from that of NC State offensive lineman Chris Colmer who missed all of last season with a viral illness of his own. Parsonage Turner syndrome, also affects the nerves, but only those confined to the shoulder and upper arm, causing numbness and paralysis in that area.
