Howard, I don't understand why this is newsworthy. It's merely a company in the private sector that gave their officers a raise based on (what I assume) is a job well done. My sister received a raise of just over 4% recently and it was not covered by the media. :)

Because they're a publicly traded company that is required to report such things. It's up to other readers to decide what they think of it. Personally, I think that Lines, compared to other CEOs, is grossly underpaid (though I don't know at the present what his bonuses amount to ... hopefully, more than $1 million a year). Others might see it differently. Graham is our only publicly traded company, so anything they do, pretty much is newsworthy.
