    Is this a desk gig? Cause I'm pretty sure the SE goes to a lot of the Packers games. Does the ASE also?

    Did I hear the word "absorb"?

    Gannett spreading everyone thin, eh?

    As far as I know, the ASE gig is almost strictly in-office.

    And based on recent conversations, Havel's gig is definitely being "absorbed", much to the chagrin of those still working there.

    They already get scooped by everyone else in the country. Now this? Feel bad for the staff.

    That's right about the ASE. The guy who was ASE wrote a column once in a while, but never covered anything. He was in the office on the desk.

    You're not kidding. I lived in Wisconsin for a bit during my college days and remeember getting a few inches of snow on the first day of May.

    Shit, I remember getting 10 inches of snow on May 15 once.
  10. I may be outing myself here, but I used to work at the other Green Bay newspaper in town, the News-Chronicle, that folded a few years ago.

    Personally, I loved Green Bay. I actually lived halfway between Green Bay and Appleton, and enjoyed both cities. There were plenty of cultural opportunities, a handful of good restaurants, and from May-September, a surprisingly large number of good golf courses.

    Everyone knows about the Packers, but there's good college basketball in the winter, leaving the summer as the only down time as far as having something of note to cover (although there is plenty of Packers stuff still going on at that time of year). Also, the high school sports in the area are quite good.

    Sure, it's cold in winter. That's no surprise. Then again, it's the same way for half the country that time of year.
