BRISTOL — Water and sewer bills are going up in Bristol Village.

According to the rates set by the Bristol selectboard on June 24, “normal users” will see about a 6 percent increase in the water portion of their bills, and a 5 percent increase in the sewage base rate.

In terms of dollars, this translates — again, for “normal users” — to about $1.25 per month for water (or about $15 per year) and about $8.22 per quarter for sewage (or about $32.88 per year).

Not the kind of magic that allows tired, hungry and fearful refugees to simply waltz across the border to new lives in America. The Lincoln couple, working as Magicians Without Borders, staged a show of sleights-of-hand and humor designed to not only entertain, but also to provide a light of hope in dark circumstances.
