February 11, 2014

Unlike last year’s District 7 2A Wrestling Tournament, where Colville High won by the slimmest of margins, the Indians won last week’s District 7 2A championship at East Valley High School by a comfortable margin over the host Knights and perennial State 2A power Deer Park.
The Indians advance 17 of their 21 District wrestlers to the regional tournament at West Valley.

Avista wants increase in gas, eletrical rates

February 11, 2014

It’s cold outside, but the news that Avista will be raising its gas and electrical rates over the next 11 months probably doesn’t do much to warm the hearts of customers.
According to Avista Corp. spokeswoman Debbie Simock, the utility company wants to raise power and natural gas rates in Washington next win¬ter, including a large increase in the basic charge for each service.
Avista serves more than 241,000 electric and nearly 152,000 gas customers in Washington.
According to Simock, the major drive in the rate request is more spending on capital projects.

“Dick has treated us well,” says Ron Tiner. “He’s only locked the door on us once.”
“I was trying to convince
them that we were closed, but they got in anyway, despite my best efforts,” Bosin jokingly retaliates.
The men laugh and take sips from their coffees; an everyday
routine
that McDonald’s has seen almost daily for the past 12 years.
