    More than 175 state employees were paid $200,000 or more last year, including more than 150 University of Massachusetts administrators and professors, 13 of whom made $400,000 or more, according to a payroll report released yesterday.

    The state's top earner was Derek Lovley, associate dean of UMass-Amherst's College of Natural Resources and the Environment.Lovley, a specialist on biofuels, made $613,000, according to data made public yesterday by the state's Office of the Comptroller. He was followed by UMass Medical School Chancellor Michael F. Collins, who made $609,000.

    Five other UMass administrators were paid between $459,000 and $549,000, followed by UMass president Jack Wilson, who received $436,000.
    Also among the top earners was James Julian, UMass executive vice president and former chief of staff to former Senate president William M. Bulger. Julian joined Bulger when Bulger became the school's president in early 1996.

    At least I can go to NH to get my gas after Cadilac Deval doubles the gas tax. It's going to be hard to get around that inspection sticker chip. Maybe the libs should put ankle bracelets on all us that has a credit card RFID in it. So they can tax us as we enter and leave any building etc. I mean the state needs the money right? :rolleyes:

    Imagine what people at "$18 Billion in endowment cash" Hah-vahd are making. Then people wonder why 4 year edjimacation costs as much as a 3 bedroom home outside of Boston. Good thing these schools and universities don't pay taxes. Imagine what that edjimacation would cost then. Even better, everytime we juice up Pell Grants, we feed the pig. This is another dirty little secret no one ever wants to talk about, cuz we need a good edjimacation system, and railing on greed in this field, isn't wise politically. If schools across the country are going to pay coach's millions, and millions of dollars, pay no taxes, and indirectly recieve taxpayer funds through financial aid, and grants, while being exempt from paying taxes, maybe we should consider implementing some regulations, or reforms.
