    Ireland off and running at Washington - Northeast Times
    Ireland Smith already had the skills she needed to be a productive point guard. The George Washington High School sophomore had the leadership part down. She had the ball-handling skills, she had the court vision and she had a great touch on her pass. But she wasn't satisfied.

Warning!!--fake "gas company" guy

Around 5:30 p.m. on 1/31/2018, my doorbell rang when I didn't expect anyone. I saw a stranger through my peephole. My storm door was locked, so I opened the front door. A young black man in dark clothing and a knit cap tried to engage with me with a cheery greeting. I simply said "Go away." and closed the door.

Around 5:30 p.m. on 1/31/2018, my doorbell rang when I didn't expect anyone. I saw a stranger through my peephole. My storm door was locked, so I opened the front door. A young black man in dark clothing and a knit cap tried to engage with me with a cheery greeting. I simply said "Go away." and closed the door. I immediately called my next-door neighbor, and he had been there as well. I called 911 with the report. My neighbor made the mistake of talking to him through her locked storm door, but fortunately did not fall for his scam. He told her that he was "from the gas company" and could help her save money. He told her to go get her gas bill and he;d show her how. She said no and closed her door. So, we are safe her, and I hope you will stay safe, too.

    Definitely! One can't be vigilant enough these days. I searched online and learned that we PGW customers now have gas choice--BUT, and a big BUT, the best prices are Not Available to us--why am I not surprised?! Still, small discounts are available and I will study their terms more closely.

    So, I studied the offers. Not good. Philly gas customers are pretty much locked into PGW. The "offers" available to us are two from just one company, at the same price, but for different contract lengths (12 mo or 24 mo). I could not display the Terms and Conditions of...

    So, I studied the offers. Not good. Philly gas customers are pretty much locked into PGW. The "offers" available to us are two from just one company, at the same price, but for different contract lengths (12 mo or 24 mo). I could not display the Terms and Conditions of these offers. Both were labeled as having a Cancellation Fee (amount not disclosed). PGW doesn't tell you its Price to Compare. I looked at all 12 of my bills from 2017, and the PGW price/ccf varied month-to-month unpredictably. I calculated that I might have saved $12.15.in 2017 on either of the alternate plans. BUT, I also saw that PGW adds something they call a "migration rider" to your bill for the first 12 months after you switch. The amount of this rider is not disclosed anywhere. So, I can't tell if it would be less or more than my calculated savings. To me, switching seems unlikely to actually help me.
