Insider contracts, like insider trading, are bad. Recently the GREAT online news website Shawnee Mission Post has been exposing insider contracts and conflicts of interest. Hooray.

and insider contract for daughter.
Mallory had zero experience in insurance before Mommy approved the contract with CBIZ where she got this high paying job last April. After K-State her only job was working at Nordstrom's. Where the customer is always right and always rich. (Publisher's full disclosure: I'm not nice enough to work at Nordstrom's...I'm barely nice enough to occasionally shop there!)
But now the Shawnee Mission School District has mud all over its face...just like one of those expensive spa mud pack facial treatments from Nordstrom!
Should Deb Zila resign? AFTER she just answers questions without paying her district $1054 in sunshine extortion fees??
Why does the SMSD charge $56 an hour for someone to comply with a valid KORA Open Records request? (They advertise the rate at $30 an hour.)
Attention, Kinko's staff--if you too just graduated from KState and can't find a real career, I'd be applying for a job running the copier machine at the Shawnee Mission School District today!
Why didn't the school district just answer reporters' questions? Instead of hiding behind their overpaid grey-suits and their big ass mahogany desks? The real culprit is the overpaid superintendent, Jim Hinson. He thinks he knows better than the public.
