    This sounds like a great job but go to the Web site first. This is not the main paper in CF/Waterloo, and this job, at this paper, sounds way too good to be true.

    That doesn't make sense for a small town paper to have a editor for such a specific sport.

    I wonder if it isn't for another publication that's affliated with them.

    At least I know now I wasn't the only one who was a bit thrown by this ad. ... You know what they say, Serve, if it sounds way too good to be true ...

    i got a sniff from the editor in an email. I sent a rather vague response to the ad and got an email back with what is your long term employment goal and how would you transition to small town Iowa. here's a clue, the paper I'm at now is a whopping 4,200 circulation. guess she figured it was either too large or too small or my answer was less than what she wanted to hear...guess being able to do the job is just a minor thing, don't matter how well you write as long as you want to be president of the corp. someday huh guys, what do you think?
