Why does the reporter provide such limited information.  Her salary was raised 2.5%.  From what?  How does the reader make any meaning from the limited facts provided.  WHY did they increase her travel reimbursement?  What was it before?  Where does she go?  What was her prior salary?

All the while we have the worse economy since the great depression, employees getting unemployment benefits for lack of work, a cut in pay, or simply just stopped looking for work altogether. 

This does not make any sense.

And how much have the teachers salaries been raised?  We could get along without a superintendent. We NEED GOOD teachers and we are not going to get them and keep them if we don't pay them.
