The New York Yankees gave Brien Taylor, the No. 1 overall selection in the June free-agent draft, a signing bonus that was nearly three times as large as any in the 27-year history of the draft. Taylor, 19, who signed the minor-league contract Monday, received a $1.55 million bonus - nearly a million dollars more than the $575,000 paid by the Atlanta Braves to Arizona State outfielder Mike Kelly, the second selection in '91. Taylor, a lefthander with a 98-m.p.h. fastball, was selected by the Yankees in June after his senior year in high school.

If Gov. Casey signs a bill encouraging senior teachers and school administrators to retire, the Haverford School District wants staff to declare their retirement earlier than mandated by the state and plans to reward them with a cash bonus. Last Thursday the school board unanimously approved a policy that would provide a $1,000 bonus for early notification of retirement for those who qualify under the so-called Mellow Bill. The bill, which has already been passed by the state legislature and is expected to be signed by Casey, is designed to save school districts money by inducing highly paid employees to retire early.

I WAS APPALLED to see that School Superintendent Arlene Ackerman got a $65,000 bonus on top of her exorbitantly high salary. Why is a city whose financial situation is dire giving such a generous bonus to someone who's well paid to do the job anyway? It's more of the same that we had with Mayor Street's "friends & family" plan. Why should people who are about to be taxed for beverages, and who knows what else, have to read about a bonus in the paper? I drive around in South Philly on streets that are riddled with potholes and the city is giving out 65K bonuses?

John Thain took over Merrill Lynch & Co. just 12 months ago. Since then, the investment banking firm has lost more than $10 billion. Its stock has dropped about 75 percent. In September, Thain struck a deal to sell the firm at a steep discount. For that, he wanted a $10 million bonus. It's hard to imagine the value Thain would have placed on his brief tenure if Merrill had made a profit. A bonus is supposed to be a reward for stellar work above and beyond your daily job requirements.

Michael Phelps will put his $1 million bonus to good use. He plans to start a foundation promoting water safety and youth swimming. Joe Gromek, president and CEO of Warnaco, Speedo's U.S. parent company, yesterday presented a check to Phelps on NBC's "Today" show. The company, which has sponsored Phelps since he was 16, promised him a $1 million bonus if he tied or broke Mark Spitz' record for gold medals at a single Olympics. The swimmer eclipsed the mark by winning eight golds at the Beijing Games - seven of them with world-record times.

Talk about multitasking. Blankid Buddy is a children's backpack, blanket, pillow, and, oh, yes, stuffed-animal companion. Think of a stuffed panda, monkey, or ladybug (OK, so it's an insect, but a cute one) without the stuffing, add a zipper and backstraps shaped like the creature's "arms" and "legs," and it's a roomy backpack for hauling stuff around. The whole thing converts into a cuddly plush blanket. The Blankid Buddy also functions as a travel pillow, and is available as just a buddy.

Sixers center Theo Ratliff earned some extra cash yesterday, but that was hardly his primary focus when he learned he had been one of the seven reserves selected by the Eastern Conference coaches for the Feb. 11 All-Star Game in Washington. It is believed that Ratliff's contract includes a $1 million bonus for making the All-Star team, and that he can earn another $1 million based on the Sixers' final victory total. Commissioner David Stern will name replacements for East starters Grant Hill, of Orlando, and Alonzo Mourning, of Miami, but Sixers coach Larry Brown - as the East coach - will select the replacement starters.

Millions of American employees will become eligible for overtime pay under new regulations proposed by the U.S. Department of Labor. "We anticipate that workers, on an annual basis, will get $1.2 to $1.3 billion in their pockets," U.S. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez said during a press call Tuesday. "Other workers," he said, "will have the gift of time. " Perez said the new regulations will particularly apply to salaried low-level managers and supervisors, many of whom, he said, regularly work more than 40 hours - "the manager who was working 20 hours for free under the current rule.

TORONTO - Chris Pronger has not skated in an NHL game since Nov. 19, 2011. Yet Pronger, in addition to every player on the Flyers' payroll in 2012-13, will receive a long-awaited bonus check in the mail next month. Every player with an NHL contract from the lockout-shortened campaign will receive the first of three "transition payments" on Oct. 15, when their first paycheck is distributed. The payment was first reported by sportsnet.ca's Chris Johnston. The transition payments, doled out on Oct. 15 in 2014, 2015 and 2016, were negotiated as part of the NHL's new Collective Bargaining Agreement when the lockout ended.

Just when Mayor Nutter thought his tiffs with unions were over, a $2.88 million tug-of-war has broken out. With the ink fresh on AFSCME District Council 33's contract, leaders of the smaller municipal union, District Council 47, are asking that their members receive the same signing bonus the 9,000 members of D.C. 33 received for ratifying their contract last week: $2,800. That is $800 more than the bonus D.C. 47 negotiated for its members, about 3,600 white-collar employees, when they ratified their contract in March.

A bankruptcy judge on Wednesday approved a bonus plan that could pay a total of $1.75 million to executives of the Revel casino and hotel, which is scheduled for auction next week. "I'm satisfied that it's an incentive plan and good for the debtor," Chief Judge Gloria M. Burns said at a court hearing in Camden. Burns allowed Revel to keep details of the incentive plan under seal, including the number of executives and the sales-price thresholds that would trigger payouts to executives.

The Phillies billed Friday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the Arizona Diamondbacks as Christmas in July, and the person getting the perfect stocking stuffer was shortstop Jimmy Rollins. With his second plate appearance in the 9-5 Phillies win, Rollins guaranteed his $11 million option for 2015, so long as he is not on the disabled list at the end of the year. He now has 437 plate appearances after going 0 for 5. While Rollins reached a financial mark, a number of his teammates came up big in helping the Phillies earn their second consecutive win. Grady Sizemore led off the bottom of the first inning with a single to center field, his 1,000th career hit. Sizemore would add hits 1,001 and 1,002, both doubles.

When the Eagles selected Matt Barkley in the fourth round of April's NFL draft, the initial surprise was not that the Eagles landed a touted quarterback who might have been a first-round pick a year earlier. The surprise was that Barkley was tabbed to play in Chip Kelly's offense, which conventional thinking suggested required a mobile quarterback. "If the fact they have the ability to run, I believe that's an added bonus, but that's not the precursor to what we do," Kelly said. "We've said it since day one. I want the quarterback that has the ability to run. I do not want a running back that can throw.

These perks are part of the for-profit hospital's strategy to keep patients happy and avoid government penalties. In fact, the center enjoys patient satisfaction numbers among the best of any hospital in the region.

WASHINGTON - Already reeling from a pair of scandals, the IRS is drawing new criticism over plans to hand out millions of dollars in employee bonuses. The Obama administration has ordered agencies to cancel discretionary bonuses because of automatic spending cuts, but the IRS says it is merely following legal obligations under a union contract. The agency is about to pay $70 million in employee bonuses, said Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over the IRS. Grassley says his office has learned that the IRS was to execute an agreement with the employees' union Wednesday to pay the bonuses.
