Guam - The Guam Public Utilities Commission is expected to sign an order finalizing an 8% increase in water rates this evening, which falls in line with Guam Waterworks Authority's five-year rate plan. The commission will also consider a new energy source - there's a resolution on the agenda to investigate the feasibility of using small nuclear reactors on Guam.
Small reactors don't have the same kinds of risks as their larger counterparts and our neighbors in Saipan have already passed a similar bill to research the viability of such a project.
Guam High School and surrounding homes at Naval Hospital have been evacuated after a bomb threat is called in Thursday afternoon. The threat specifically targeted the school.
