Residential electric customers in Lake Township can expect a 6 percent discount off the rate to be set by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio for member communities of a coalition, Tom Hays, township solicitor, said last week in a memo to the township trustees.

Hays and other representatives of Northwest Ohio Aggregation Coalition communities met recently to discuss a proposal by First Energy Solutions to extend the coalition contract for another six years.

“During this extension period FES will provide a 6 percent discount for residential customers and a 4 percent discount for small commercial customers from the standard rate set through the PUCO process,” the memo says. “In addition, Lake Township would receive a one-time payment of $30 per customer.”

Reform an empty word without public option

I have to confess that the need for healthcare reform didn’t fully hit me until I was hospitalized last March for emergency removal of 18 inches of small intestine that somehow got twisted and gangrenous.

I was lucky. I was visiting my son in Vermont when I experienced stomach pain and nausea, and was taken by ambulance to one of New England’s top-notch hospitals. Had I been traveling in war-torn South Sudan, with its nonexistent medical facilities, and “roads” that become a sea of red mud during the rainy season, I would not be alive to write these words.

Oddly, though, the image that kept coming to mind as I lay in the ICU, attached to various life-support systems and attended by a bevy of highly trained personnel—surgeons, anesthesiologists, pulmonologists, nurses—was something I saw two years earlier in the market town of Akon, in South Sudan.
