    Paper with a good reputation. A bit isolated in the middle of the state (about 3 hours out of Portland), but good place for outdoor thrill seekers.

    I'll second this ... we have traded stories with them at my shop and they're reliable folks to work with.

    Heavy-duty mountain biking/outdoors area in central Oregon, so if you're into that, go for it.

    Been there quite a few times. Pretty decent paper, although has gotten smaller in recent years. You can get pretty much anything you need or want in Bend/Redmond, but once outside the city limits, it's a pretty long drive to anywhere else. You have to cross the mountains (on mediocre roads) to get to Eugene, Salem or Portland.

    Applied. Seems like a pretty sweet gig. Although Bend looks like it's more expensive than it should be.

    True. Resort town close to Mount Bachelor.

    I am the one vacating the job...happy to answer questions or talk to anyone who is applying.

    Not offering the following to discourage anyone from applying -- just in the interest of full disclosure. We have been operating under two furlough days a month for years, and there's not much sense that that's going to change.

    It is a good job to build your portfolio. And Bend is an awesome place to live. I am leaving journalism but found a job in town because my wife and I didn't want to leave.
