Water will cost two-dollars-and-75-cents for a thousand gallons.
To pay for the deal ...
The city will hike water rates twice:
Eighteen percent in January, 2000...
Ten percent a year later.
For the average household... that means water bills eventually go up about three dollars a month.

The bright band of sunlight you see around the moon during an eclipse is called the corona. Solar explosions that happen in this layer effect the earth's magnetic field, our power grid and pipelines and the only time you can see the corona from the ground is during an eclipse.
