MERIDIAN — Calling for answers from our two senators

    According to press reports, a Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine recently traveled undetected in the Gulf of Mexico on a month-long patrol. This submarine activity reportedly occurred in June and July, simultaneously with incursions by Russian strategic bombers into restricted U.S. airspace.

    What are the ranking member Sen. Thad Cochran, on the Senate subcommittee on Defense, and Sen. Roger Wicker, the ranking member on the Senate subcommittee on Sea Power, doing to find out how and why a Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine armed with long-range cruise missiles operated undetected in the Gulf of Mexico off our state of Mississippi for several weeks, traveling Gulf waters undetected by our Navy and Coast Guard.

About Gulf Power's rate reduction

    Gulf Power in their August newsletter "Current Connection" announced a 7.8 percent rate cut. They attributed this cut to taking advantage of the lower prices for natural gas used to generate electricity.

    With this rate cut a residential bill for 1000 kWh will drop from $126.53 to $116.61.

    I wonder would they like to share in our lignite plant.
