_The school board approved salary increases in August for 13 administrators, which included a 11.3 percent increase for Superintendent Mike Zalar. The increase brings his annual pay to_ <b>$130,221</b>, _up from $116,965._
_Parents said they were upset Mr. Zalar and others received the raises while to save money for the district, officials recently eliminated busing for their children._
_But school board members defended their decision, saying Mr. Zalar deserved the raise and it would help the district retain him._
No school buses for the kids, but 13 admin get raises? There wasn't one person who could be found that would accept a $116,965 a year job if Mr. Zalar left? Their hands were tied on this?
