Of course they covered the circus

after all, some chick dressed as Queen Liz showed up.

But you had to go to the jump and read the very end to get the real story from last night's GC Bored o' Eddication meeting:

The board voted unanimously to renew Wilbanks’ superintendent contract for another two years, extending it until June 30, 2008.
He will receive a base salary of $228,375, a 4.4 percent cost-of-living increase equal to the average increase for teachers. He will also receive a 7.5 percent increase in his current expense allowance, and an 8 percent increase in his current transportation allowance.
With health benefits and other expenses, his total compensation package will be based on an annual salary of $276,422 from Jan. 1, 2006 until June 30, 2006.

Per usual, the marginally competent hands at the AJC managed to lead with the bleedin' obvious.
