    How did this not get posted here? I know it's not a sports job, but you can't beat the convenience. Hell, you'd be 15 minutes from ANYWHERE!

    We're looking for someone who sees intriguing story possibilities in pancake breakfasts, kids fishing derbies or a new burger place opening in town. The ideal candidate will be a well-organized, detail-oriented editor who would enjoy working with community members to make their submissions shine. Some photography skills desired.

    Thorough knowledge of AP style is required. The selected applicant must be Web-savvy and enthusiastic about learning new Internet applications.

    Include a cover letter explaining how you would handle dozens of contributors who all think their event is the most important. EOE.

    Talk about a slam dunk for anyone who has ever dealt with sports parents.

    It would take you 15 minutes if you crawled it.

    And I'm sure it's been done that way, Football_Bat.

    Tahoe is beautful, obviously, but you had better be able to handle snow if interested in this one. Probably won't pay tons, either, and it's not cheap to live there.

    Yeah. Pay will be low, rent will be high, and if you're in South Lake Tahoe, it can be fun. I used to live in Truckee and if I ever came back, it would still on the north side of the lake, but in Kings Beach. Best get some chains as well.
