Redux: Bauman Contract Renewed

The decision by Superintendent of Schools Hazel Bauman to seek work in western Washington comes as a surprise because the School Board gave her good grades earlier this year when they added a year to her contract. Here's the Coeur d'Alene Press story from Feb. 5, 2013:

School trustees in Coeur d'Alene gave Superintendent Hazel Bauman (pictured in school district photo) high marks Monday before voting unanimously to add another year to the district's top administrator's contract. The extension will keep Bauman in her position through June 30, 2016. “I would like to publicly say that one of the best things about this job has been working with you. I have enjoyed that and I look forward to continuing that relationship quite a bit,” said board chair Tom Hamilton. Trustee Ann Seddon thanked Bauman for being accessible to board members and for sharing her insight with them. Bauman thanked the board for their support and gave credit to the school district employees. … Bauman's annual pay remains $123,971, the same amount she has been receiving since 2009-10, when Bauman took a voluntary 5 percent pay cut decreasing her then $130,496 annual salary by $6,525/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press.

CdA Signs w/Ironman 5 More Years

Not to be overlooked from last night's City Council meeting … the council unanimously agreed to another five-year contract with Ironman for the city to continue hosting Ironman Coeur d'Alene. This is from City Clerk Susan Weathers' rough draft of the minutes: “City Attorney Mike Gridley noted that it has been 10 years since Ironman came to Coeur d’Alene.  He presented a 5-year contract with World Triathlon Corporation for continuing the Ironman race in Coeur d’Alene.  He noted that not much has changed in the contract but noted that one of the changes is the bicycle course now going south on US 95. Councilman McEvers noted that there is not much of a change in the cost to the City, but rather just more specific language in the contract.  City Attorney Gridley confirmed that is the case. Steve Wilson, representing the Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce, confirmed that the sponsorship fees have gone up around the country but they have kept our Chamber’s sponsorship fees the same and have also allowed the Chamber increased opportunities for fund raising.” Complete rough draft of council minutes here.

Question: Are you a fan of Ironman? Indifferent? Oppose it?

Ed Board Tweaks Petersen Contract

The State Board of Education on Thursday approved several tweaks to Boise State football coach Chris Petersen’s contract. The vote was 6-0 with two board members absent. Petersen’s automatic one-year extensions for every season in which the Broncos win eight games now will include a $100,000 raise, double the previous contracted amount. His bonus for a Bowl Championship Series berth (now $150,000) or a conference championship (now $100,000) has been increased by $25,000. Petersen’s total compensation, including longevity bonuses and supplemental retirement contributions, will be $1.525 million this year/Chadd Cripe, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: For all the positive exposure & dollars that the Boise State Broncos bring to Idaho, I believe Petersen is worth every  penny of his salary and automatic raises. How about you?
