    A few things about this gig:

    1. The town of Clinton has seen better days, but it still has a huge ADM facility. Think (and smell) high-fructose corn syrup. It's across from Illinois on the Mississippi River .

    2. You'd mostly be covering a handful of high schools on both sides of the river, with a some small-college sports and Midwest League Class A baseball mixed in.

    3. Probably a good job for a young journalist. The SE has been around eastern Iowa awhile and certainly knows the ropes.

    Hey, Brenden — former Herald Assistant Sports Editor — here. Just want to let people know that this wasn't a case where I left a bad job. I received an internal promotion, and I'm happy to answer applicants' questions about the work. Feel free to email me at brendenwest@clintonherald.com.
