Grand salaries

July 15, 2008


To the editor:

This is in response to "New K-State AD has grand vision" (Journal-World, July 7). K-State athletic department suits paid $400,000 and "change" to an assistant basketball coach? And Kansas Athletics Inc. pays three assistant vice-presidents (I guess that's their title in an incorporated entity or whatever it is) $200,000 plus or minus "change" here in Lawrence?

And the city and county are worried about their budget for trivialities like schools and roads?

Sounds like Kansas people have the right priorities.

Athletic budgets are supported by donors, ticket sales and merchandise sales, not tax payers.

Maybe the city/county should start charging for downtown entertainment, run parking meters 24/7, charge for the parking garage and lots, enforce current traffic laws for all vehicles (including bicycles) and institute a vehicle sticker for all vehicles (including bicycles) in Lawrence.

Maybe people who weren't/aren't good at sports should stop sending letters to the newspaper.
