Plans to renovate Jefferson Forest High School are now officially dead.
The school board realized it would cost too much to renovate.

So the school system turned to a state law which allows localities to contract out the design, construction, and financing of new schools.
The school board decided last night to move forward with two of the four proposals.

One would build a new Jefferson Forest, the other calls for the construction of a combined middle and high school at an Industrial Park located off Route 460.

Southside residents may feel the heat from 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 Craig-Botetourt Co-Op.
But it's not clear if rates in those communities will rise as well.
