Online petition protests UA president bonus

- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A protest over a possible $320,000 bonus for the president of the University of Alaska has collected more than 400 names. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the online petition was launched last week by UA Fairbanks faculty member Sine Anahita. The associate sociology professor says such a bonus for Pat Gamble isn't appropriate when about 40 positions have been eliminated at UAF. UA regents offered Gamble the $320,000 bonus if he stays on the job until 2016. The bonus is equal to a year of Gamble's salary. Regents Chairwoman Pat Jacobson in a memo says Gamble's salary hasn't increased since 2011 and that his pay is at least 25 percent lower than the salary for system presidents at comparable universities.
