The average Lamar R-1 schoolteacher made $31,172 last year, according to the district report card released earlier this year and available for viewing at the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education website. That total is $8,085 less than what O'Sullivan Industries' million-dollar CEO Bob Parker made...during the last two weeks of October.
A financial report filed Tuesday in U. S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia indicates Parker, who took a medical leave of absence during the time period, was paid $39,257 for Oct. 15-31. His fellow Newell Rubbermaid refugees, Rick Walters and Kelly Terry earned E$10,474.88 and $8,076.46 respectively during the 16-day time period.
An interesting feature of the report was a listing of taxes that the company has not yet paid. The list includes more than $275,000 in personal property and real estate taxes owed to Barton County and due at the end of the calendar year.
The report shows O'Sullivan Industries had $1,133,435 as of Oct. 15 and $1,178,405 at the end of October.
