Mount Olive teachers appear to have a new contract

Thursday, 19 December 2013 10:10 Published in Local News

It appears the teachers in a small Illinois school district could soon have a new contract.

 

The Mount Olive Board of Education approved a contract agreement that was reached with the teachers' union on Saturday. Teachers were back in the classroom on Monday after spending a week on the picket line. Under the agreement, four teacher will have their retirement benefits reinstated. The contract also eliminates a two-tier salary system. That plan meant new teachers would make less money than current teachers in the district.

 

Teachers are also getting their first pay raise since 2009.

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Church officials have defrocked a United Methodist pastor from central Pennsylvania who officiated his son's gay wedding in Massachusetts.
 
The Rev. Frank Schaefer of Lebanon had already been suspended. On Thursday, he met with church officials to determine whether he would continue as a pastor.
 
Schaefer was told to resign from the clergy by Thursday if he could not follow the denomination's Book of Discipline. But Schaefer says the book discriminates against gay people and says he wouldn't voluntarily surrender his credentials.
 
Church spokesman John Coleman says officials decided to defrock him.
 
Schaefer left the short meeting with church officials without commenting but planned to address the matter later Thursday.

Senate bill would allow US to resume Egypt aid

Wednesday, 18 December 2013 16:38 Published in National News
WASHINGTON (AP) - A Senate panel has approved a bill that would allow the U.S. to restore its full aid relationship with Egypt.
 
   Wider congressional support for the measure is unclear.
 
   The Senate Foreign Relations Committee's bill, passed Wednesday, softens the American ban on assistance to governments suffering coup d'etats. It allows the president to waive the restriction for up to a year on national security grounds.
 
   For Egypt specifically, President Barack Obama has a waiver option through September 2015.
 
   However, the bill requires the administration to make a coup determination within 30 days of a questionable government change. Obama's aides avoided such a decision after the Egyptian Army's July overthrow of the country's Islamist president, citing the risk to important military programs.
 
   The administration suspended much of the aid in October.
