    Just to note, I found this link at journalismjobs.com and it has been one of four postings by GateHouse Media today on the jj.com site. Maybe they've cleaned house or not. Just sayin'.

    Downers Grove is the home of Leapin' Lanny Poffo.

    And that ends my contribution to the thread.
     
  4. For all those hockey fans out there, it's also the home of the Granato family. And, like MM, that ends my contributions as well.

    I heard a little bird that said "CHEEP CHEEP CHEEP CHEEP!" But birds often say that.

    Gatehouse (formerly Liberty) is right there with JRC at the bottom of the journalistic barrel.

    I second that. Gatehouse took over The Brockton Enterprise and The Patriot Ledger. The Brockton SE was reassigned and the Quincy SE retired, and both positions have remained unfilled since the spring. There's no indication that Gatehouse has put any $$$$$ into these papers. In fact, they're severely understaffed with no signs of relief. They've got writers acting as temporary SE's while trying to do their normal jobs. Bad, bad situation.
