TEACHER PAY RAISES: Governor Bob Riley delivered his budget to the state legislature yesterday, and it included a proposed four percent pay hike for Alabama teachers. But, the Alabama Education Association says that is simply not enough. Union members say they have not received cost-of-living increases in three years, and four percent would not match a two year rate of inflation. A spokeswoman for the Jefferson County A.E.A. says the union will continue to -push for at least seven percent.
