Student Spotlight PIKE-GIBSON WATER CORRECTION Pike-Gibson's Water Corporation's 15 percent increase was incorrectly reported in a previous issue. Pike-Gib- son's water rates are going up 15 per- cent and that will be reflected in the January 2021 bills. However, the rates The Press-Dispatch listed are half what the minimum bills will be. Pike-Gibson, in their legal notice, listed their 1,000 gallon rates, which were included in the previous issue. However, they have a 2,000 gallon minimum each month. So minimum charge each month will be $22.80, up from $19.82 with a 5/8 -inch meter. Consequently, the minimum water bill increase for the year will be $ 35.76. The price for each additional 1,000 gallons above the 2,000 -gallon mini- mum will cost a customer $10.67, which is up from $ 9.68 for up to 8,000 addition- al gallons. So a customer using 3,000 gallons a month will see a yearly in- crease of $47.64. A 3/4-inch meter will have a $54.81 minimum for up to 5,000 gallons, which is up $47.66. Over a year, that increase will be $ 85.80. A one-inch meter minimum increas- es from $ 94.06 to $108.16 for up to 10,000 gallons. A 1.5 -inch meter in- creases from $207.15 to $238.21 for up to 25,000 gallons.

Locally Owned and Operated Dr. Clint Shoultz 715 S. 9th Street, Petersburg 812-354-9400 Early discovery leads to quick extinguishing of barn fire Petersburg Fireman Carl Benner looks for any signs of a hot spot from a minor fire in Josh Offil's barn on Highway 65, just west of Union. A motorist driving by noticed smoke and fire in the barn and stopped. He found a heat lamp near a cage of piglets that had set bedding material on fire. He was able to get the pigs away from the fire. The fire was extinguished before it did much damage to the barn structure. It happened at about 5:30 p.m. Monday.
