.... by Isaac Gibson and Mackenzie Trent , Due to the influx of new tudents at CHS from St. Paul, J0ur school has greatly expanded our student body. St. Paul High not only contributed great &apos;athletes, but clubs as well. The ,Lake Estonoa club, formerly of -SPHS, is now at Castlewood. ,They have long been com- :nended for their efforts in ,tudying the small wetlands, "located beside SPHS. They have even been featured in Virginia Wildlife magazine. Their most "recent accolade came this year, when their efforts made Cas- tlewood High a Virginia Naturally Recognized School. The school and club were pre- ,ented with a plaque to com- emorate all the work that the stonoa club has done to pre- ,-serve and study one of southwest .eVirginia's only wetlands. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, yarious CHS clubs will join ::;together to raise awareness by :*way of a school and commumty ,supported tree covered in Pink xibbons and hearts. The Breast !,,ancer Awareness tree will be :xlisplayed in the foyer in front of ,the auditorium throughout this ,aonth.

This also can be fixed in crock pot. reduced rate increase authorizes $6.65 The State Corporation Com- mission (SCC) has approved a revised rate settlement that me- ans customers of Kentucky Util- ities, doing business as Old Dominion Power Company in Virginia, will pay less for elect- ricity than the company origin- ally requested. Under the Commission order, a rate increase totaling $6.65 million was approved. Kentucky Utilities originally requested an increase in rates in the amount of $9.3 million. The company's proposed rate increase would have raised the monthly bill of a typical resi- dential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of elect- ricity from $82.27 per month to $96.73 per month, an increase of $14.46 or 17.58 percent. The re- quest also included a $4 increase in the monthly customer charge, from $8 to $12. for Kentucky utilities; * million increase The SCC approved rate in- creases the typical residential customer's bill to $92.05 per month, an increase of $9.78 or 11.89 percent. This includes a $2 increase in the monthly customer charge. The new rates take effect on or after November 1, 2011. The SCC found that the approved rate increase was just- ified by the higher costs reason- ably incurred by the company to provide reliable service. This includes additional annual capital-related expend- itures of approximately $6 million to comply with en- vironmental requirements and placing a new generation plant into service. Kentucky Utilities also incurred $6 million in costs related to the December 2009 snow storm, which results in an amortized additional annual cost of approximately $1.2 million.
