My personal view is that EASB saves one heck of a lot of money to induce some staff to voluntarilyRead Mores urrender their tenured position and "voluntarily " retire as part of a broader reduction in force plan and whatever resources EASB has should be addressed to inducing more retirement as opposed to rewards to those essentially already headed out the door. Each such permanent new staff hole can "save" a job of an existing job holder , though clearly as part of real world money issues a few at bottom of the rungs need to go...but it can easily be far less at bottom if more new volunteers are induced to "retire." Actually one need not be "old" to make the EASB savings work. Pure greed / waste to hand out retroactive "incentives.... The amount EASB "saves" to induce early retirement by surrender of property right in an individuals tenure is much bigger that meets the eye --probably on order of $150,000 in first year alone, each. Don't take my word for it..just look at the reverse problem that in part EASB paid out $650,000 when it was faced with a deadly question of having improperly destroyed her career options in that very tenure situation.

Not to worry, the die is set and EASB is set to award about $600,000 Worth of health coverage toRead Mores taff who already previously agreed to retire ....makes one wonder about the credibility of claims we don't have money for programs and we need to furlough whatever number of people it is this week or whatever credibility you give to a no furlough promise.....it's next to the no tax increase promise gathering dust in corner....

It will be successful. No doubt, that's why they want two drive up lanes. Not too many places haveRead Moret wo drive up lanes. A whole lot of cars will move through that area bringing lots of traffic to that intersection. Forget about making a left out of CVS to get to Sullivan Trail. And with two traffic lights so close together on Sullivan Trail, I wouldn't be surprised to see gridlock during the busy times. Weiss may pick up some more customers as people look to avoid that.
