Tooth Fairy I Lost a Tooth - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - According to Jason Alderman, Senior Director of Global Financial Education, Visa Inc., the average going price for a tooth is $3, which is up from $2.60 in 2011. The increase represents a 15 percent boost for losing a tooth this year. To help parents figure out how much the going rate is for the Tooth Fairy to leave, Visa has created a free app to assist in this matter.

If you are not sure how much the Tooth Fairy should leave for the lost tooth, fear-not, because Visa has created a free app for Apple iPhones and Apple iPads. The app, which can be downloaded at the iTunes Store, will calculate the going rate. If you do not have an Apple device, you can also visit www.PracticalMoneySkills.com/ToothFairy to use the calculator online from a computer.

(Best Syndication News) The County of San Bernardino and the State of California will be working together on a project to improve the drinking water of Pioneertown, a small tourist destination near Yucca Valley.

Since the 1992 Lander’s Earthquake there have been problems with the water supply, according to George Watson, the Chief of Staff for County Supervisor Neil Derry. The water quality has continued to suffer since the 7.3 magnitude earthquake. The water became so bad that it is now “undrinkable.”

Last week the Board of Supervisors (BOS) voted to give the Special Districts Department $400,000 to work in conjunction with the California State Division of Drinking Waters and Environmental Management.
