    Is this how they're going to fill Chris Havel's spot?

    They had 2 guys leave. Havel is one. Jeff Ash, who was the ASE, went to work for their online staff. But there is only 1 job posted. Not sure what's up.

    I heard Havel's job, at least for the time being, is going to be absorbed internally. The column will be shared between a few different guys, including Packers beat guy Pete Dougherty.
  5. Could someone share more information on the paper ... positives/negatives and such? Thanks.
  6. Negative: It's in Green Bay.

    The sports editor is Mike Vandermause. Good guy to work for.

    Gannett paper. Good group of reporters in sports. Living in Green Bay can suck if you're young and single. If you've got a family, it's not so bad. A half-hour from Appleton and an hour and a half from Milwaukee.

    Not surprisingly, all Packers, all the time.

    From what I hear, the pay isn't bad.

    Sorry I'm so vague. Best I can do at this time of night.

    I heard that, too.

    From what I've heard, Norman is right on about the paper. Vandermause is a good guy and they do a lot with the Packers. As for living there, that sounds about right, too.

    Did anyone else notice this? Everyone mentions the Packers but the job description doesn't. What's up with that.

    I'd think the "Green Bay" part in the posting would have given it away. Not much else going there.

    But I could be wrong.

    - UW-Green Bay basketball (horribly underachieving men's team, dominant women's team)
    - Green Bay Gamblers (Junior A hockey)
    - St. Norbert College (DIII football, hockey)
    - Green Bay Blizzard (af2)
    - Green Bay Bullfrogs, a new Northwoods League baseball team ... woodbat league for college players
    - Some strong prep programs in the area too (Notre Dame, Preble, Ashwaubenon, Bay Port) ... area finally got WIAA hockey this year.

    Pretty much it.
