    Anyone got the skinny on this position? I know Santa Rosa is pretty nice, but how is the paper?

    The Press Democrat, a 92,000-circ New York Times regional daily in Santa Rosa, Calif., is anticipating an opening for a lead sports designer with strong editing skills and sound news judgment. We value content-driven presentation that includes generous use of outstanding photography and graphics. Our sports designers are challenged daily to shape a lively section that includes staff coverage of the 49ers, Raiders, Giants and A's.

    What you bring to the table: Enthusiasm. A desire to be a leader in a fun, collaborative newsroom. An appreciation of newspapers. And lots of ideas on how to make them better.

    Santa Rosa is a city of 150,000 in the heart of Northern California's Wine Country, about an hour north of San Francisco. We're a guild paper with excellent pay, benefits and opportunities, including a stock purchase plan and 401(K). Sports designers work 4-day weeks and new hires start with 3 weeks of vacation.

    Send a resume, letter and at least six samples showcasing section front design to:

    Steve Leone
    Design Desk Chief

    Skinny? Here's the deal. My buddy, the other sports designer, is leaving. We're looking for a sports designer -- experience is needed. Santa Rosa's a decent place to live, and it's close to SF. It's a four-night-a-week job, and you'd probably be doing sports every night you work -- I get dragged to biz and other departments. The people are nice and the pay is better than 90% of the jobs for this size out there. If you want more specifics, ask.
