JOE SEED 1329 E. Iron Salina, Ks. 825-4998 Like a good neighbor. State Farm is there The Salina Journal Thursday, January 9,1986 Page 15 KG&E asks for lower rates for top customer TOPEKA (AP)•- Kansas Gas and Electric Co. of Wichita will lose its biggest power customer — Vulcan Chemicals Co. — and other ratepayers will suffer if state utility regulators do not approve a special dis-. counted rate for the company, the utility said Wednesday. Earnest A. Lehman, KG&E manager of rates, said in testimony before the Kansas Corporation Commission that Vulcan is willing to accept a lower quality of power service in exchange for lower rates. The KCC must approve the rate change. Lehman said Vulcan won't accept substitutions to the proposed five- year contract, which calls for Vulcan to make a $16 million payment in advance to KG&E. Vulcan has given KG&E a deadline of Jan. 15 to win KCC approval of the deal, he said. "Under the agreement, the customer would not be guaranteed a steady and reliable source of energy," Lehman said during cross examination by Brian Moline, chief counsel for the KCC staff. "It would ehange from firm service, which is guaranteed reliable around the clock, to an interruptable service." Lehman said Vulcan might experience a loss of service due to weather outages, power line problems or regular testing. However, Moline questioned KG&E witnesses about the frequency Vulcan might lose power. He clearly doubted such outages would happen on a regular enough basis to warrant a rate discount. Under the proposal, Vulcan's rates would drop several cents for each kilowatt hour, depending on how much power it uses. Vulcan has threatened to build its own power plant and generate its own electricity if the agreement is not approved. "If this is not approved, we would prefer to spend our money on a power plant and become self-sufficient at Wichita as we have at our Geismar, La., plant," William Bryant, energy manager for Vulcan, testified. "The facility could be built and fully operational within two years and the entire project could be done for under $50 million." Bryant said Vulcan projects the power plant would pay for itself within three years. He noted that Vulcan already built a $10 million power plant at its Wichita facility that provides 33 percent of the total power needs. Vulcan is a major producer of chlorine and caustic soda and is the world's second largest manufacturer of chlorinated organic solvents with manufacturing plants in Port Edwards, Wise., Louisiana and Wichita. The Wichita plant produces chlorine, caustic soda, muriatic acid, hydrogen, chlorinated organic solvents and pentachlorophenal. County itches with measles NEWTON (AP) - The number of suspected measles cases has grown to 17 in Harvey County, health officials said Tuesday as they pressed their search for the source of the state's largest outbreak since 1982. The original cases were reported Dec. 20, the first in Harvey County since 1972. Elsewhere in the state, there had been just one case of measles in 1985 — in April in suburban Kansas City. There have been recent outbreaks elsewhere last year — and cases were reported in Colorado, Missouri and Oklahoma. So far, the Harvey County Health Department director, working with two representatives of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, have not found the source of the measles, which surfaced among students in Chisholm Middle School. It since has spread to include two preschoolers, a 28-year-old man and two women in their early 20s. This type of measles commonly is known as the "red" or "hard" measles.
