Customers of Mississippi's two privately-owned electrical utilities will see higher rates starting in February.
           
The Mississippi Public Service Commission voted Tuesday to approve rate changes for Entergy Corp. and Mississippi Power Co.
           
Customers of New Orleans-based Entergy, serving the western half of the state, will see rates rise 10 percent because of higher costs for fuel and other items. Public utilities staff says a yardstick residential customer will pay $114 in February, up from $104 now. Entergy's revenues are projected to increase by about $67 million.
           
Mississippi Power ratepayers from Meridian to the Gulf Coast will see rates rise 4 percent. A yardstick residential customer will pay $130 a month, compared to $126 now. Changes are projected to increase revenue by $39 million for the unit of Atlanta-based Southern Co.

    Injuries midway through the 2017 football season thrust Northeast Jones High School’s Swiss-army-knife-of-a-player, Javier Magee, behind center as the Tigers’ starting quarterback. The experience was, to say the least, unsettling. “It was kind of hard,” said Magee, who is known by his nickname, “Fi Fi,” which for some reason lost in time, is spelled “Fa Fa.”
