    The El Paso Times is looking for a top-flight sports copy editor/page designer to fill an immediate opening on its universal copy desk. The ideal candidate has at least three years’ experience designing pages for a daily newspaper using Quark XPress and Photoshop.

    We are looking for an innovative designer who doubles as a wordsmith — someone who can write snappy headlines and catch errors and omissions in copy, and do it all on tight deadlines.

    A good attitude, excellent language skills and the ability to thrive and work collaboratively in a deadline-driven environment required. This is not an entry-level position, but we’ll take a look at an all-star in the making who has less experience.

    Interested candidates should send a résumé, a brief explanation of why you are the best fit for this job and PDFs of at least five pages you have done to Assistant Managing Editor Kyle Jones at kjones@elpasotimes.com, with the subject line “copy editor/page designer.”

    El Paso is home to the University of Texas at El Paso, the annual Sun Bowl football game, Fort Bliss and a newly minted four-year medical school. Residents enjoy more than 300 days of sunshine each year, a comfortable climate and low cost of living.

    The El Paso Times, with a circulation of 72,000 daily, offers competitive salaries and a full benefits package. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

    Oh the memories I have of this West Texas town ... it's actually where I fell in love with a Mexican girl.

    plenty of opportunity to cross over into Ciudad Juarez, the deadliest city in the world, or something like that.

    From the few days I spent in El Paso back in July, it seems like a pretty cool city. Hell of a lot bigger than I expected. And a few miles north, right at the NM-TX state line, is a casino and horse track. Interesting driving range on Lee Trevino Drive, too.

    Is it true what they say about the donkey shows in Juarez?
