    I was told by our electric company to ask the state to offset the increased charges in their latest bill. Over 200 for a 2 room apartment is a bit overkill. Then, The very next day, an aricle announced their profis were up 36%. I believe those folks down in Columbus approved an incremental rate increase. I wonder if there was some stock offers made during that hearing. Must be nice to have a way of guaranteeing profitability. Oh, I wasn’t suppose to tell you about their recommendation (Small print legal disclaimer at the bottom.)
