Salvation Army Concludes its 2010 Angel Tree Toy Distribution Today

What: December 21, The Salvation Army Metro Atlanta will wrap up its 2010 Angel Tree program with toy distributions to the families of over 892 Dekalb County children from low-income households.

Throughout the day, The Salvation Army staff and volunteers will distribute unwrapped new holiday toys, clothing and other gift items donated by local residents and businesses to local children in need.

An Outrageous Raise or a Well Deserved Supplement?

An Outrageous Raise or a Well Deserved Supplement?

DEKALB COUNTY, GA -- "I think it's more of the same, a slap in the face." That's how Kim Ault and other parents reacted Friday to a $73,000 pay hike for Interim DeKalb County School Superintendent Ramona Tyson.

Some are outraged that a school system that's $50 million in the red and racked by a recent scandal would even think of such a move.

But with a 7 to 1 vote, the DeKalb County School Board increased Tyson's salary by 44 percent.

"Given what she's taken us through, it's disingenuous if we were going to continue to pay her 50 cents on the dollar," said School Board Chairman Tom Bowen.

He points out that Tyson has been working at her old Deputy Superintendent's salary of $165,000 since taking over the top job last February.

She took over when previous Superintendent Crawford Lewis was suspended and then fired after being charged with corruption.

Lewis' salary was $255,000 when he got the boot.
