  • Letter To the Editor: Last week was one of the most exciting and frustrating weeks I've experienced in over 25 years as school superintendent. First rumor had it making over $100,000 a year. I thought maybe the school board felt the job I was doing was so great they were giving me a raise and hadn't told me.  Then I heard I was making $65,000. My dilemma - maybe I wasn't so great and lost $35,000. Oh well next week will be something new! I don't know what, but excitement, frustrations and even challenges- they all seem to pay the same.
