    Avista reaches compromise on rate hikes

    Monday, August 18 2014 9:13 PM EDT2014-08-19 01:13:03 GMT
    Spokane, WA- After pressure from the state attorney general's office, Avista agrees not to raise rates as much as they had initially planned. According to the Spokesman Review, if their increased rates pass, the average Spokane customer will pay $2.10 more for electricity and $3.62 more for natural gas each month. That's much lower than what Avista had originally proposed. The increase would have made the average customer pay $4.89 extra for electricity and $5.23 extra for gas each month.

On the other hand, it opens them up to the outside world. Just because they can stay in touch with you, doesn't mean they actually will. Unless you force them to.That's the idea behind "Ignore No More," a smartphone application that grants parents control over their child's phone.
