Southside residents are facing higher electric bills beginning 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 dollars.
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.

British scientists conducted a study with patients suffering from bladder cancer.

The notion that dogs can smell cancer first emerged in 19-89 from two London dermatologists.
A patient asked for a mole to be removed from her leg because her dog would constantly sniff it.
