    We're looking for a person to lead the night-time production for an aggressive sports department which regularly earns state and national awards. The right person would be an entertaining paginator, skilled copy editor and be able to motivate an enthusiastic staff. Send work samples, resume and cover letter to sports editor Mike Albright at 601 E. William, Decatur, Illinois, 62525 or submit them to malbright@herald-review.com.

    One time I did a copy editing test where I made a correction on the instructions. They e-mailed me to set up an interview, then the job got frozen.
