Aw, Isn't That Sweet?

Last night, the SRIA board and General Manager Buck Lee kissed and made up. Lee gets a 1-year contract renewal and a 5 percent pay raise.

Currently, Lee is paid $82,628 a year and $700 per month for travel expenses, plus benefits.

To his credit, board member Vernon Prather led a charge to up the annual raises awarded to staff, who've really been doing the heavy lifting. The across-the-board 4 percent raise still falls one percent short of Buck's increase. Wild-eyed optimists consider that for the SRIA, at least it might be a small step toward that terra incognito of equal pay for equal work.

No word, though, on the Hummer.
