Item: Avista officers making more: SEC filing details greater compensation, stock awards received/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Total compensation rose for Avista Corp.'s top executive officers in 2010 compared with the year earlier, according to the company's annual proxy statement filed on Thursday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Scott Morris (pictured), Avista's chairman, president and chief executive officer, earned $3.24 million last year. That was a jump of more than $217,000 compared with 2009. He made $2.68 million in 2008.

Question: Are top Avista officials tone deaf when it comes to their salaries and compensation?
