That’s a bit intimidating….publishing grades in the newspaper. 😦
I actually find it was rather common. Also have found newspaper articles from when Roscoe was teaching with his salary published under county expenses.
Well, I suppose, as a government employee, his salary would be available…but publishing it in the newspaper seems a bit much. Salaries could be a lumped category. But, it was a different era.
Hmm, isn’t that a misspelling?
