    I often wonder what these people do to deserve the money they get paid. If county school superintendents are any clue, it isnt all that spectacular. The money is available so they take it. My daughter is graduating from Berea college hopefully this May and I have NEVER seen their president. If I attend functions there isnt there something the matter with that!? And No, Berea college is diffently not free, not even close. My son went to UK and it cost us very little with his scholarships. On the contrary we have had to take out loans out the ears for my daughters education even though she had the same scholarships. Anyway, I am broke and I am tired of "higher ups" asking for and getting more funds even though our ecomony is shot to $%^&!
