    Don't expect the pay to be real good. But there are good preps there, and Carl West is a great editor to work for I've been told.

    Ypu're close to Lexington and Louisville. I haven;t seen the State Journal at too many UK games however.

    Anyone know who is leaving?
     
  4. Susan's leaving, but staying in town apparently with some other company.

    Frankfort does staff most Louisville home hoops games.
