University of Chicago President earns top dollar

Monday, 16 December 2013 10:31 Published in Local News
WASHINGTON (AP) - The president of the University of Chicago is the highest-paid president of America's elite private universities.
That's according to a survey of tax information collected from 500 private schools with the largest endowments.
The Chronicle of Higher Education released that data Sunday using federal tax information from 2011, the most recent available.
Robert J. Zimmer had base pay was $918,000, but his total compensation was $3.4 million. About 40 percent of his total earnings stem from deferred compensation - a retention tool commonly used to keep college presidents on the job longer.
Presidents from 42 private colleges scaled the $1 million annual mark in total pay and benefits in 2011. That's a slight bump from the year before. The median compensation was $410,523.
A high salary can be a sign of prestige, but it also opens presidents to criticism. The Obama administration and consumers are pressuring schools to rein in tuition costs, increase graduation rates and strengthen the value of a diploma.

Illinois will only accept conceal-carry permits online

Monday, 16 December 2013 10:22 Published in Local News
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois State Police will only accept online applications from people who want new concealed carry permits.
The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers reports that's concerning for one Illinois lawmaker who was the chief sponsor of the state's new gun law.
Harrisburg Democrat Rep. Brandon Phelps says people should "have a choice" whether to file an application on paper or through their computer. He says some people may not have access to computers.
But Illinois State Police officials say they're not set up to process paper applications. ISP spokeswoman Monique Bond says the paperless system is "more efficient, cost-effective and easier for other agencies."
People will be able to file applications starting January 5. 
Authorities anticipate 400,000 people will apply for concealed carry permits in the first year alone.
