... Sighted this morning by a Berry Picker (turning onto Prairie Avenue from Highway 53 near Hauser Junction) -- an otherwise nondescript white pickup with a camper shell that appeared to be an Avista truck. A huge sign was plasted to the rear tailgate. It appeared professionally done and duplicated Avista's logo, except it said: "Avista: We don't care. We don't have to." Ouch!
