Glen Nobes of GKN Building has recently completed a pergola attached to our house.

We are delighted with the structure and the service that Glen delivered. As soon as we saw the house we knew it was just what we had been looking for!

From the start, Glen was professional and dealt with our numerous queries promptly and with a great deal of patience.

He provided guidance and offered advice on practicality during the design process.

“Professional state employees should make a good living, but they are not entitled to make a killing,” said Eric Epstein, coordinator with the Rock the Capital reform group in Harrisburg and an advocate for pension changes.

Some of the payouts, he said, “are excessive pockets of gluttony that are deeply disturbing” as Pennsylvania confronts a billion shortfall in its retirement obligations.

Gary Schultz, the former Penn State vice president who pleaded guilty in the Jerry Sandusky scandal, takes home 0,699 in pension benefits.

Former state lawmaker Frank Oliver, a Democrat who represented North Philadelphia, gets 6,117.

More than 127,000 former Pennsylvania state employees or their beneficiaries collect public pension checks each month, and most are comparatively paltry. But despite reforms in the system — which mostly affect future retirees — and a move by some states to cap retirement payments, a separate class of Keystone State pensioners will continue to receive checks that alone put them among the top tier of all income earners in the United States.

As the costs of public pensions continue to be a point of debate for struggling state and municipal governments, the Inquirer and Daily News reviewed data for hundreds of Pennsylvania’s highest-paid beneficiaries, all current through August.

They showed that 20 state retirees collect more than 5,000 a year — a payout so big it exceeds an IRS mandated pension cap and must be paid from two plans. Officials in the system say such retirees earned their benefits — contributing a percentage of their pay to the state’s defined-benefit plan, along with their employers.
