    That's doable as a single person in his/her mid 20s in that area. Preps and North Texas, and driving distance to watch Morning News writers cover pro beats. There are worse management-track opportunities.
  4. That's true. But it's Belo ... we all know how that's gone over the past few years.

    Denton is Von Erich territory.

    Third opening on sports staff in 13 months. For the record I made much less than this in Denton and succeeded in amassing a good amount of credit card debt. This wage is much more reasonable for that part of the world, though it's still going to be tough there.

    Good bands to be seen on Fry Street. Good preps to be seen around there, too.

    Ronnie Richard was the ASE for a while there. Did he leave, and if so anyone know where he's off too?

    Denton hasn't paid much recently. But it is a college town and there is cheap housing and cheap dinner deals around if you know where to look. When I was considering a job there I found an excellent apartment available for a ridiculously low amount. Only thing was it catered to the college crowd. I don't remember the cost, but I remember calling to make sure it was just college housing. They assured me it wasn't.
    But I didn't take the job anyway. Still, I wouldn't let the wages discourage anyone looking to get started in management. It's doable. Just don't drive to DFW every day.

    Not any more; Kevin -- the last surviving Von Erich -- sold the family farm and moved his family to Hawaii.

    Last I heard he was a copy editor at the Morning News. He's been gone from Denton for at least the better part of a year.
